BETA PROGRAM UPDATE
After months of development and testing in the factory, Hyliion has purchased a brand new Volvo D13 Tractor: the truck is a sleeper model with all of the finer accouterments like an in-cab refrigerator and microwave, allowing for extensive testing of overnight power consumption and reliability. Hyliion can now test and improve all aspects of the suspension system in the real world, from fuel consumption and maintenance requirements, to Auxiliary Power Unit performance and electronic stability control.
This recent development follows months of testing using rental trucks and drivers with incremental improvements to the suspension system. The team at Hyliion is excited to have a tractor for instant real-world feedback, reducing the cycle-time required between making improvements or changes and measuring results.
We expect the purchase of this new truck to reduce time to market and improve the quality of our final product. We look forward to bringing the backbone of America to the forefront of innovation.
