Leader in electrified powertrain solutions for Class 8 commercial vehicles Hyliion Inc announced the launch of its Hypertruck Electric Range Extender, a long-haul fully electric powertrain delivering superior performance, emissions reductions and cost-savings to the global trucking industry. The launch of the Hypertruck ERX is anchored by Agility, one of the world’s leading logistics companies with USD 5.2 billion in revenue and offices in 100 countries. Agility has confirmed a pre-order of up to 1,000 trucks and has agreed to invest in a private offering of securities to be issued by Tortoise Acquisition Corp in connection with Hyliion’s recently announced business combination.

Combined with a fully electric drivetrain and a natural gas-powered onboard generator to recharge the battery, the Hypertruck ERX will provide more than 1,000 miles of range. The powertrain also produces electricity locally at roughly 30 percent less than the average grid cost, which yields a seven-year cost-of-ownership unmatched by any diesel, battery-electric or hydrogen fuel-cell class 8 truck under development.

With more than 700 public stations across the US, the Hypertruck ERX leverages a robust natural gas refueling infrastructure. The truck is the only electric Class 8 vehicle that can achieve a net-negative greenhouse gas emissions footprint using renewable natural gas. It will achieve 25 miles of pure electric vehicle range in compliance with cities adopting Zero Emission Zones. The vehicle’s low carbon footprint is further enhanced by the system’s machine learning algorithm, which optimizes energy efficiency, emissions, performance and predictive maintenance schedules.
