    In 2020, sales of light trucks (including crossovers) represented over 76% of the U.S. market, an increase from 72% the year before, and a continuation of a long-term trend in the industry 

    Dana has developed a smart disconnecting all-wheel drive system. In this the primary driveline drives the front wheels all the time whereas it drives the secondary driveline whenever necessary and thus leading to better fuel efficiency

    There has been a significant shift from conventional axles to E-Axles. Dana has wider product range in e-axle than in the conventional axle portfolio. 


    Key benefits of E-axle among light commercial vehicles are:

    • Tighter turning radius due to a shorter wheelbase
    • Increased room between frame rails for additional battery capacity, which extends the range of the vehicle
    • Lighter weight



    The drive segment held a dominant share of 56.5% in 2020 based on volume and is expected to expand at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Growing demand for all-wheel-drive vehicles would take a toll on the adoption of drive-type automotive axles.

    The lift axle segment is projected to witness considerable growth from 2021 to 2026. The lift axle shipment was recorded at XX million units in 2020 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. Lift-type automotive axles are usually used in heavy commercial vehicles as secondary automotive axles to increase the load-carrying capacity of the vehicles.



    • Dana has expanded its production capacity of All-Wheel-Drive Axle Systems at the Chongqing site in China to support the additional Ford & Lincoln vehicles in the country
    • Dana will be supplying its Dana 60 AdvanTEK solid rear axle with Spicer PerformaTraK electronic locking differential to the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX pickup truck model.
    • ZF launches next generation Active Kinematics Control (AKC) active rear axle steering system. In the latest version the greater steering angle of up to 10⁰ increases the agility of long vehicles and “Steer-by-wire” technology simplifies the integration into automated driving functions.
    • The battery-electric version of the 37 buses in London is propelled by the proven ZF electric portal axle, AxTrax AVE. The electric axle can be combined with numerous drive configurations – ranging from hybrid and fuel cell drive systems to battery-electric solutions.
    • Meritor announced that production of its 14Xe all-electric, fully integrated, commercial electric powertrain for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles will begin mid-2021.




    2021-Q1 Global Light Vehicle (LV) Production forecast to be strongly up at 10.3% increase over prior year despite shortage in the supply of semiconductors
