Allison Transmission, a leading designer and manufacturer of conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion solutions for tactical wheeled and tracked defense vehicles, will provide the Allison eGen Force electric hybrid system for American Rheinmetall Vehicles’ (ARV) Team Lynx prototype.
Team Lynx, led by ARV, was recently selected for Phases 3 and 4 in the U.S. Army’s Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle competition, now named the XM30 Combat Vehicle program.
Allison Transmission is proud to partner with ARV and all members of Team Lynx—Textron Systems, Raytheon, L3Harris Technologies and Anduril Industries. Allison has combined its decades of expertise in both electric hybrid propulsion solutions and defense vehicles to develop our eGen Force that delivers optimal acceleration and braking, precision steering and true engine-off silent mobility, which are critical differentiators for this combat vehicle.

The Allison eGen Force features fully integrated autonomy-enabling drive, steer and braking systems. The eGen Force benefits from Allison’s more than two decades of electric hybrid system experience as well as its tracked vehicle system knowledge refined over seven decades. The advanced propulsion solution features a 220-kilowatt electric motor and associated inverter for on-board vehicle power and parallel electric hybrid operation. Beyond power generation for auxiliary system capability development, the propulsion solution provides enhanced mobility performance and efficiency with a significant reduction in fuel consumption and reduced thermal and acoustic signatures.
