Hyliion Inc. will be providing three vehicles to Penske Truck Leasing, all of which will incorporate its 6X4HE Class 8 hybrid system. The solution was developed in partnership with Dana Inc., whose Spicer Electrified components are part of the e-Powertrain solution.
The remaining vehicles will be delivered throughout the year, allowing Penske to complement its fleet with the combined Hyliion-Dana Class 8 electrified solution. As part of the program, Penske will provide ongoing assessments on current and next-generation products.
“We are excited to deploy our technology with Penske, a company that is leading the industry shift toward electrified solutions. Our hybrid electric system on their Class 8 sleeper truck will reduce fuel consumption while also improving the driver experience,” said Hyliion Chief Executive Officer Thomas Healy.
“Together with Hyliion, we have a unique opportunity to implement long-haul solutions today that revolutionize power conveyance and support fleets in meeting their sustainability goals,” said Mark Wallace, president of Dana Commercial Vehicle Drive and Motion Systems.
“Penske is committed to advancing and testing innovative technologies that are shaping the future of electric mobility in commercial transportation,” said Paul Rosa, senior vice president of procurement and fleet planning at Penske Truck Leasing. “We look forward to deploying these new vehicles into our fleet and evaluating them as a part of the diversified offering of electric vehicles we have for our customers.”
