Allison Transmission To Build Advanced Vehicle Environmental Test Facility

Allison Transmission, a manufacturer of medium- and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions for commercial vehicles, announced it is investing in a new vehicle testing facility.

This facility is to be located on the campus of Allison’s global headquarters in Indianapolis. It will include two environmental chambers capable of simulating temperature extremes, altitude, and on-road conditions that will allow testing for regulatory compliance, on-board diagnostic development, and performance improvements for vehicle functional optimization. The Vehicle Environmental Test facility will further support testing for a range of propulsion systems, including conventional powertrains, alternative fuel, electric hybrid and fully-electric vehicles.

Additionally, when the facility is not in use by Allison, third parties will be able to utilize the chambers for testing. Project planning for the Vehicle Environmental Test facility has begun and is scheduled for completion in 2020.
