ISE, ZF partner for hybrid drive line

Posted on June 23, 2009

ISE Corp. (ISE), designer and manufacture of hybrid propulsion systems and components for heavy duty vehicles, and ZF Friedrichshafen (ZF), manufacturer of vehicle driveline and chassis technology, announced plans to collaborate on the development and supply of a complete line of parallel-electric hybrid-drive systems and components for the North American vehicle markets.

ZF and ISE have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that outlines plans for an intended strategic collaboration and development partnership.

Collaboration details of the MOU include ZF's intention to utilize ISE expertise for integration engineering, sales, subsystem assembly and service support for ZF Hybrid systems and components into the North America commercial vehicle market.

Respectively, ISE intends to develop and market an ISE branded parallel hybrid-drive system for the North America commercial vehicle market that incorporates ZF Hybrid Systems & Components. ZF has developed several parallel-hybrid configurations for various applications for the transit bus and truck industries, and as a result of this agreement, North American sales of ZF Hybrid Systems and Components will be sold through ISE and jointly marketed by both companies.
