First Class 8 Hybrid Truck Delivered to Wal-Mart
15 May 2007
The Eaton Hybrid Power System in the truck features an automated manual transmission with a parallel-type direct hybrid system, incorporating a 44 kW electric motor/generator located between the output of an automated clutch and the input to Eaton’s Fuller UltraShift transmission.
During third-party testing, the Eaton Hybrid Power System has routinely achieved a 5-7% fuel savings versus comparable, non-hybrid models. It may result in a savings of one gallon of fuel per hour when idling.
