Where hybrid technology fits into fleet emissions plans

Emissions regulations are coming, especially in California where the emissions goals are the most aggressive. While fully electric trucks begin to roll out, increased interest in other powertrain options such as natural gas and hybrid technologies have gained fleet interest. Hyliion, one of the industry’s hybrid technology pioneers, unleashed a number of announcements over the summer that have expanded their hybrid truck offerings.

To get a sense for how hybrid equipment is being received, their role in meeting emissions regulations and to find out how Hyliion helps fleets on-board the technology, I connected with Hyliion CEO Thomas Healy and Secretary Andrew H. Card Jr. Watch the video above for all of the details.
