The revolutionary Volterra™ platform of electric vehicles meets the needs of your fire department while providing the operational performance you expect from your apparatus.
- Zero Emissions
- Zero Compromise
- Reduced Noise
- Oshkosh Patented Parallel-Electric Drive Train
- Electro-mechanical infinitely variable transmission (EMIVT)
- Integrated onboard batteries
- Internal combustion engine for continuous and uninterrupted power to the pumping system or drive system
- Industry-leading operational range for full-shift operation
- Fire Station-Based Charging Infrastructure
An Oshkosh patented parallel-electric drivetrain featuring an electro-mechanical infinitely variable transmission allows zero-emissions operation when powered by the integrated onboard batteries.
The chassis will operate under electric power in all normal operational situations and will leverage the internal combustion engine for backup power in extended emergency operations.
Standardized Pierce pumping configurations, up to 2000 gpm, are driven through the electric driveline and are powered by either the integrated onboard batteries or the internal combustion engine.
The driveline allows for zero emissions during quick attack responses, and has the ability to transition seamlessly to internal combustion power for extended pumping operations.
A fire station-based, all encompassing vehicle charging infrastructure provides operational readiness.
Charging solutions are tailored to provide an unobtrusive installation necessary for any station. Established nationwide energy experts offer simple, fast charging solutions capable of full vehicle recharge in less than 90 minutes.
