However, Rheinmetall and the truck manufacturer have agreed to a total project lifetime of over 15 years.
In winning the order, Rheinmetall overcame rival bids from two competitors in the low-pressure casting sector.
Rheinmetall will supply the gearboxes as fully machined components leading to synergies for the Group since casting will take place at its plant in Neckarsulm and final machining at its Langenhagen facility.
This solution assures optimum utilization of capacity at both production sites.

The order gives Rheinmetall a chance to apply and expand its expertise in e-mobility and practically participate in this growth market from the outset.
In cooperating with a longstanding truck producer, the Group aims to jointly develop and introduce the component Europe-wide, increasing the likelihood of additional orders.
Price Action: RNMBY shares closed lower by 0.17% at $52.41 on Thursday.
