Creating a Revolution
The Hyliion System evolved out of a passion for horsepower. As a mechanical engineer and motorsports racer, Hyliion Founder and CEO Thomas Healy set out to bring the advantages of hybrid technology to tractor trailers. His mission was to minimize fuel costs for long-haul, over-the-road delivery fleets by bringing electric technology to tractor trailers in an add-on solution.
Following wins at case competitions across the country, interest for the concept grew, and so did investment. The group expanded their engineering team and strategic advisors to include electric vehicle experts, truck and fleet owners, and business leaders. Hyliion’s patent-pending technology has won accolades from the U.S. Department of Energy, Wells Fargo, Rice University, and Shell Technology Ventures, among others.
