AUSTIN — Hyliion Holdings Corp. (NYSE: HYLN) (“Hyliion”), a leader in electrified powertrain solutions for Class 8 semi-trucks, and Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) (“Cummins”), a global power solutions provider, today announced the two companies are joining forces to optimize the Cummins natural gas engine as the generator for the Hypertruck ERX powertrain.

Together the companies plan to obtain key environmental certifications for Cummins’ natural gas internal combustion engines to be used in Hyliion’s Hypertruck ERX powertrain. The Hyliion Hypertruck ERX is an electric range extender semi-truck powertrain solution using onboard power generation to recharge the batteries.

“We are excited to work with Hyliion to offer this range extender electric and natural gas powertrain in the North America heavy duty truck market,” said J. Michael Taylor, General Manager Global Powertrain Integration, Cummins Inc. “Natural gas solutions are an integral part of our journey towards zero emissions. Integrating our engine with the Hyliion Hypertruck ERX solution is key to offering our customers a portfolio of powertrains across many fuel options to meet their sustainability goals.”

The Hyliion Hypertruck ERX offers 75-miles of electric range to qualify for credits under CARB’s upcoming ZEV mandates and can achieve up to 1,000 miles of full range through the generator, greatly reducing range anxiety. Cummins’ ISX12N will be optimized with the Hyliion Hypertruck ERX, so that it can use the existing 700 natural gas stations across North America for low cost refueling.

Hyliion and Cummins are two of the companies leading the industry-wide movement to use alternative fuels to move more quickly toward zero-emissions, with improved fuel-efficiency and economic value for customers while also meeting more stringent EPA and CARB certifications.

“With the shared goal of making commercial trucking more sustainable, our collaboration with Cummins will undoubtedly benefit the transportation industry. Attaining EPA and CARB certifications is a key step on our production path, and I look forward to working with Cummins to get our Hypertruck ERX on the road and making a positive impact on the environment,” said Thomas Healy, Founder and CEO of Hyliion.

Start of production for the Hypertruck ERX with the ISX12N Cummins natural gas power is anticipated to begin in late 2023.
