Fuel Savings

$100 Billion Annual Problem

Every year the U.S. trucking industry consumes 51 billion gallons of fuel accounting for over 30% of overall industry operating costs.

Every year the U.S. trucking industry consumes 51 billion gallons of fuel, accounting for over 30% of overall industry operating costs. Annually, the industry spends over $100 billion on fuel. The average fuel economy of a tractor-trailer (18-wheeler) is 6.5 miles per gallon. An average truck driver spends almost $60,000 a year or over $150 a day in fuel.

That is almost double what a driver takes home in salary. The total fuel savings using the Hyliion system amounts to over 30%. Using an annual consumption rate of 23,000 gallons, the system would save 7,700 gallons, or over $18,000 using the current average, on-road fuel prices.

Hyliion Solution

The Hyliion System reduces fuel consumption by up to 30%, and could save the Trucking Industry over $30 Billion Annually 

The trucking industry spends $100 billion on fuel every year. With the Hyliion System achieving an average 30% fuel savings, we can save the industry $30 billion annually. The Hyliion System delivers fuel savings while the tractor-trailer is in motion through hybrid technology, aerodynamic design, and an APU powering the ‘refer’ and/or ‘heater’ units. We save money while the tractor-trailer is stationary via our APU unit.

Hybrid Technology

The underlying hybrid technology provides savings using the energy storage capability of a battery pack under braking, and the assistance of an electric motor under acceleration.

Aerodynamics

Our unique, complete aerodynamic package (including air foil, side skirts, and wheel covers) allows the Hyliion system to significantly reduce air resistance at speed.

Engine Idle

When stationary, the Hyliion System turns our battery pack into a superior APU. An APU that lasts 10 years vs the 2 that are regularly out there. It packs enough of a punch to power a normal truck for over 20 hours.
