GreenPath Logistics, a full-service truckload carrier based in Dallas, Texas, has ordered 50 Hyliion Hypertruck ERX trucks, backed by deposits to secure production slots.
GreenPath, which was founded to help its customers meet sustainability goals and reduce the carbon footprint of their supply chains, is the first member of the Hypertruck Innovation Council to place an order of Hypertruck ERX units, according to a Hyliion announcement.
The Hypertruck ERX is an electric powertrain for Class 8 trucks that is recharged by an onboard natural gas generator. With the ability to use more than 700 commercial natural gas vehicle filling stations across North America, it enables long range and quick refueling. And when fueled with renewable natural gas, it can provide net-negative carbon emissions to commercial fleets.
An early adopter of Hyliion technology, GreenPath placed an initial order of 20 Hybrid eX units in December 2021 and will collaborate with Hyliion to begin fleet trials for the Hypertruck ERX in their operations later this year.
With the addition of the GreenPath Logistics order, Hyliion now has 150 Hypertruck ERX production slots confirmed, with reservations for nearly 2,000 additional units.
“GreenPath Logistics’ resolute commitment to sustainability and alternative fuels make them an incredibly valuable Hypertruck Innovation Council member, and I’m thrilled that their experience with our powertrain solutions has led to further collaboration and the integration of Hypertruck ERX units in their fleet,” said Thomas Healy, Founder and CEO of Hyliion, in a release.
James Purvis, president of GreenPath Logistics, called the deployment of Hypertruck ERX units “a momentous next step in our electrification journey that will benefit the environment, our company and our drivers.”
