Hyliion Launches Improved Hybrid Truck Powertrain, All-Electric HyperTruck ERX

Hyliion announced an improved version of its Hybrid system at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo in Long Beach, California, and showed off a long-range version of its Hypertruck ERX that will help truck makers meet California zero-emissions truck regulations.

This updated version of Hyliion’s hybrid powertrain, designated the Hyliion Hybrid eX, offers fleets a lighter solution that is easier to install, service, and operate, according to the company. The Hybrid eX draws upon the real-world feedback Hyliion has received from customers and the millions of miles logged with the previous system.
