Hyliion Holdings Corp. has formed the Hypertruck Innovation Council, a select group of fleet, logistics and transportation industry leaders that will actively support the development of Hyliion’s Hypertruck powertrain solution.
Representing over 100,000 Class 8 commercial trucks globally, Hyliion says the council will collaborate closely with Hyliion to provide key user insights in the development of the Hypertruck, the company’s electric powertrain for Class 8 commercial trucks.
Council members will be the first to have access to and put real-world miles on the Hypertruck ERX demonstration units, providing fleet and driver feedback. With an eye on furthering sustainable practices in the commercial trucking industry, Hyliion says the council shares Hyliion’s focus on reducing carbon emissions without sacrificing performance.
The Hyliion Hypertruck ERX is an electric powertrain charged by natural gas for Class 8 commercial trucks. Hyliion says the Hypertruck ERX intends to provide a long-haul, electric powertrain solution delivering lower operating costs, emissions reductions and superior performance to the global commercial trucking industry.
