Fuel utilization system
The HyPower Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle system that allows utility truck operators to save up to 1.5 gallons of fuel per hour. The system operates the truck’s aerial lift without running the engine to save fuel, reduce emissions and eliminate noise. The manufacturer estimates that the system can reduce diesel fuel use by up to six gallons every workday. Designed specifically for the utility industry, where vehicles may remain stationary for several hours, the system is self-contained, so it can be installed on virtually any chassis. The system does not interface with the vehicle engine or transmission, to minimize wear.
