TRIAL BY FIRE

TRIAL BY FIRE

Daimler just released this quarter’s financial statements and profits were down 32% this year over last. Volvo reported that North American orders were down 54% and deliveries had fallen 33% year over year.  Despite these omens of the transportation sector’s worrisome condition, the Obama administration, the Department of Transportation (DOT), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are proceeding as planned with the new Green-house Gas Emissions statute.  The regulations apply to tractor-trailers, large pickup trucks, vans, and all sizes of bus and work truck, and the EPA estimates improvements required to meet these standards will cost up to $12,000 for...

CHARGING & COASTING

CHARGING & COASTING

Rumors are floating about that non-compliance with President Obama’s most recent GHG (Green House Gas) Emissions rules will be $28,000 per day per truck-trailer out of compliance. The timing is unlucky as just last week, orders for large trucks plunged 37% to the lowest level since 2007, while at the same time, the U.S. Government reduced its estimates for GDP growth from 1.6% to 0.1%, a slim margin removed from recession levels.  Wholesale inventories fell 0.5%, sales fell 0.2%, and people across the nation are looking for the "Dip Ahead" sign. $28,000 per day is a steep price to pay in a bear market,...

GOVERNMENT MANDATES: WHAT THEY MEAN FOR YOU & HOW HYLIION CAN HELP

GOVERNMENT MANDATES: WHAT THEY MEAN FOR YOU & HOW HYLIION CAN HELP

January 15, 2016 – With another new year behind us, it is time to set resolutions for the future: governments around the world have already begun planning through the year 2027, and they’ve placed some hefty goals on all of us. These goals range in scope from fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions to road-safety and public health, but here at Hyliion we’ve been monitoring their development to ensure that the Hyliion suspension system will exceed compliance standards. To start with, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have created medium- and heavy-duty...

EMISSIONS MANDATES

EMISSIONS MANDATES

June 19, 2015 – The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced plans for Phase 2 of the medium- and heavy-duty vehicle Greenhouse Gas (GHG) standards which are scheduled to take effect in 2021. Phase 1 has already begun implementation as of 2014, with the intent of reducing GHG emissions by 6 billion metric tons over the lifetime of vehicles sold between 2014 and 2018, and by all accounts has been considered an administrative success. The mandates for these rules stem from President Obama’s June 2013 Climate Action Plan, which sought to...
