Developed for performance and durability, TM4’s SUMO electric powertrain systems are optimized for medium-and heavy-duty electric and hybrid vehicles such as:
- 6-18 meter buses
- Delivery trucks
- Municipal fleet work trucks
- Shuttles and more
By allowing direct-drive operation, TM4’s SUMO efficient and low-maintenance systems reduce powertrain complexity and cost.
«With their superior efficiency, performance, competitive price and maintenance-free lifecycle, the TM4 SUMO powertrains are enabling our customers to get a faster ROI. »

Urban transit will be largely EV by 2025. Metropolitan cities are moving toward electric and hybrid buses with government support to improve air quality and reduce noise.
TM4 SUMOTM direct-drive electric powertrains are specifically designed for 6-18 meter buses. These high-torque permanent magnet motors are designed to interface directly with standard rear differential without the need for an intermediate gearbox.
Inner-city delivery vehicles are perfect candidates for electrification and hybridization. Their itinerary is local, planned, short (usually less than 100 km per day), includes starts/stops and they park in a depot at night, which allows for full recharge of the vehicle.
TM4 SUMOTM direct-drive electric powertrains are perfect for delivery trucks, garbage trucks and municipal fleet work trucks, to name just a few.
