ZF Innovation Award for CeTrax Electric Drive at Busworld

ZF Wins Innovation Award for its CeTrax Electric Bus Drive

  • Busworld honors the electric central drive with a top innovation award
  • E-mobility solutions from ZF support future-proof mass transit

ZF has received the Innovation Award from the Busworld 2019 trade exhibition for its CeTrax electric central drive. The electric drive allows buses used for public transportation to operate with zero emissions. ZF’s technology beat out strong competition in the category for individual components and peripherals.

This trade exhibition could not have started bettery for ZF: The technology company was honored with the Innovation Award by the specialist jury the night before the Busworld exhibition in Brussels. The CeTrax electric central drive beat a tough and diverse field of competitors in the category for individual components and peripherals.

Head of Axle and Transmission Systems for Buses and Coaches at ZF, Dr. Andreas Grossl, said:

“This award demonstrates again that ZF is a pioneer in the electrification of all vehicle segments. CeTrax is a central building block in developing future-proof mass transit, which ZF makes every effort to support. The trophy proves once again that we are on the right track with our strategy.”

This is not the first award that ZF has received this year for its electric bus drives. In February, the AxTrax AVE electric portal axle was presented with the Environmental Protection Award at the ElekBu trade show in Berlin.

CeTrax: Flexible and Powerful

CeTrax was specifically designed by ZF for use in buses and was presented to the public for the first time in 2017. The design of the drive is based on a plug-and-drive approach. CeTrax can be easily installed in vehicles with a conventional driveline layout. It is thus suitable for the development of new vehicles as well as for retrofitting existing platforms. This allows vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators to respond flexibly to market requirements and legal regulations.
