Hyliion has announced the release of the Hyliion 6X4HE Hybrid Electric System for Class 8 trucks. Developed in partnership with Mesilla Valley Transportation, PAM Transport, and Ryder, the Hyliion 6X4HE can be installed on new or retrofitted onto existing Class 8 trucks, and works without any driver interaction.

According to the company, the Hyliion System uses hybrid electrification to deliver fuel savings, lower emissions, instant telematics and a better driver experience, for a total of 30% fuel and emissions savings. Fuel savings are delivered by the blend of three technologies: 15% electric hybrid drive axle, 12% APU, and 3% aerodynamics, the company added.

Regenerative braking captures power when slowing down then electric power is applied when necessary to keep diesel engines at their most efficient RPM delivering hybrid fuel savings. The APU leverages Hyliion’s proprietary cooling system and battery to deliver 18,000 BTUs for 10 hours on a single charge. In addition, two outlets provide electricity in the cab. The 6X4HE is also Shore Power enabled.

“Electrification is the talk of the industry,” stated Scott Perry, Chief Technology and Procurement Officer for Ryder Fleet Management Solutions. “Hyliion provides a creative solution for long-haul over the road trucking that we feel will be of interest to current diesel fleets who are looking for an advanced technology that they can pursue in the very near future. We’re excited to be working with their team on this product as this relationship expands upon Ryder’s ability to provide customers with the most innovative solutions to help them streamline operations, promote safety and reach their efficiency goals.”

Hyliion is currently taking orders for the 6X4HE with production starting November 2017.
