Travel with a hybrid truck that includes various compartments
Business Class M2e Hybrid drop-frame truck is ideal for hauling and delivering heavy loads in urban settings or for transporting utility crews and equipment. The Class 6 vehicle features a hybrid electric system, which couples a diesel engine with an electric motor/generator and batteries. Enables operation with electric or diesel power, either separately or together. Provides up to a 30% savings in fuel consumption and up to an 87% reduction in idling time. Also reduces fuel emissions and noise. To maximize space of 12-bay body, most of the hybrid components are mounted underneath vehicle and behind the cab. Aerodynamic aluminum cab offers a 55-degree wheel cut, sloped hood and 2,500-sq.-in. windshield for enhanced visibility and safety.
