Cummins Acquires Electric Drive Train Company

Cummins has taken another step towards integrating electric power after it acquired Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI), a California company known for its commercial hybrid and electric power technology.

Cummins had previously introduced a concept hybrid truck in 2017.  They continued their commitment to electric power, acquiring Brammo, a producer of electric traction motors, and Matthey Battery Systems, a lithium ion battery designer and manufacturer.  EDI represents yet another step toward that commitment.
