Hyliion has announced that Mone Transport has ordered 20 units backed by deposits to secure Hypertruck ERX production slots. Based in Laredo, Texas, the door-to-door service provider is an early adopter of green technology, with Hyliion Hybrid diesel solutions already incorporated into its operations.
Having seen success with the implementation of Hyliion Hybrid products in its fleet, Mone Transport reserved 40 Hypertruck ERX units in July of 2021, and has converted 20 of those reservations to orders after their recent Ride and Drive experience at Hyliion’s headquarters. The order further demonstrates Mone’s commitment to sustainability, with a particular interest in improving fuel economy and driver experience, all while reducing its carbon footprint.
The Hypertruck ERX is an electric powertrain that is recharged by an onboard natural gas generator for Class 8 commercial trucks. Utilizing the 700+ commercial natural gas vehicle filling stations across North America, it enables long range and quick refueling, and when fueled with renewable natural gas, can provide net-negative carbon emissions to commercial fleets, according to Hyliion.
