The company reportedly has successful application cases with design life exceeding 30,000 hours.

Weichai Power said it has “successfully integrated battery, motor and electronic control into a whole new energy power system to propel the whole industrial chain, coupled with the power of Aradex AG.” Those achievements are paving the way for Weichai Power to be “a global leader in new energy industry by 2030”- its strategy planning, in terms of advanced product and technology, the company said.

Both parties will strive collaboratively and synergize fully to develop new energy commercial vehicle power systems, Weichai said. Aradex will expand and grow on the synergies of Weichai Power’s global complete vehicle and machinery, core components of power system and global R&D innovation center and other resources, and Weichai Power is expected to facilitate industrial upgrading and restructuring with the contribution from Aradex, the announcement said.
