Hyliion Inc. and Dana Incorporated recently launched a national program with truck leasing, rental and maintenance company Idealease to demonstrate Hyliion’s Hybrid Diesel Powertrain.
According to the manufacturer, the system can reduce fuel usage, decrease greenhouse gas emissions, improve performance, and reduce operating costs for fleets, and it is designed to be installed on most Class 8 commercial trucks.
“The commercial transportation industry has reached a pivotal point where environmental impact is paramount to business success. Our hybrid system has the potential to transform diesel fleets, offering an immediate, sustainable impact on a company’s carbon footprint while delivering a positive return for their business,” said Thomas Healy, CEO and founder of Hyliion.
Idealease’s national tour will continue through the end of 2020, offering short-term rental agreements to Idealease customers interested in evaluating Hyliion’s technology. The hybrid system is installed on an International LT Series chassis and and features Dana’s S23-175 drive axle and SPL driveline.
“Idealease is committed to equipping our customers with the world’s leading technology that reduces operating costs while reinforcing our commitment to building a more sustainable commercial transportation industry,” said Andy McEnaney, vice president of affiliate services at Idealease.
