Hybrid Truck Fleet Ordered for Coco-Cola

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Kenworth Truck Co. of Kirkland, Wash., announced that it received its largest ever hybrid
truck fleet order from a distributor of Coca-Cola. The order is for 150 Kenworth T370
diesel-electric tractors and 35 Kenworth T370 hybrid trucks. The Coca-Cola fleet operator
reports a more than 30% improvement in fuel efficiency and carbon emissions over standard
beverage delivery trucks in a year-long evaluation of the T370. The T370 hybrids are
equipped with a PACCAR PX-6 engine, rated up to 280 hp and up to 660 lb-ft of torque, and
an Eaton diesel-electric hybrid power system. The hybrids also have an integral
transmission-mounted motor/generator and frame-mounted 340-volt lithium-ion battery. Can it
be long before similar systems are available for towing and other recreational use?
