Hyliion, Cummins to bring natural gas Hypertruck ERX powertrain to the North America market

Hyliion Holdings Corp a provider of electrified powertrain solutions for Class 8 semi-trucks, and Cummins Inc., a power solutions provider, recently announced the two companies are joining forces to optimize the Cummins natural gas engine as the generator for the Hypertruck ERX powertrain.

Together the companies plan to obtain key environmental certifications for Cummins’ natural gas internal combustion engines to be used in Hyliion’s Hypertruck ERX powertrain. The Hyliion Hypertruck ERX is an electric range extender semi-truck powertrain solution using onboard power generation to recharge the batteries.

The Hyliion Hypertruck ERX offers 75-miles of electric range to qualify for credits under CARB’s upcoming ZEV mandates and can achieve up to 1,000 miles of full range through the generator, greatly reducing range anxiety. Cummins’ ISX12N will be optimized with the Hyliion Hypertruck ERX, so that it can use the existing 700 natural gas stations across North America for low cost refueling.

Start of production for the Hypertruck ERX with the ISX12N Cummins natural gas power is anticipated to begin in late 2023.
