Allison Transmission Inc. has entered into a long-term business agreement with Delphi Automotive Systems, LLC, with Delphi supplying to Allison hybrid-drive system components and energy storage systems. Allison says that Delphi's expertise in the manufacture and integration of electronic and hybrid system components for the automotive industry will complement its existing product offerings in the city transit bus and truck markets. The initial focus will be on the use of hybrids in pickup-and-delivery, shuttle, utility, and refuse applications. Allison was awarded a $62.8 million grant in August under the U.S. Department of Energy American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
