Hybrid Heavy Load

Powertrain hybridization for heavy-duty vehicles is becoming more and more widespread in the automotive industry. However, for truck original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), hybrids are not seen as an emissions reduction solution, but one of a broad range of engineering initiatives that are currently being developed. The article discusses how most people in the automotive industry agree that heavy duty trucks of the future will have some form of powertrain electrification and it is very likely that these trucks will also have other features to improve efficiency, such as exhaust waste heat recovery, aerodynamic enhancements to both tractor unit and trailers, and dramatic internal combustion (IC) technology.
