This Net-Negative Carbon Producing Electric Truck Uses Renewable Natural Gas to Recharge Its Batteries

This Net-Negative Carbon Producing Electric Truck Uses Renewable Natural Gas to Recharge Its Batteries

This is the Hypertruck ERX by Austin-Texas-based Hyliion, the only Class 8 net-negative carbon-producing electric powertrain. To put that into perspective, the average diesel semi-truck reportedly emits 210 metric tons of carbon annually. What sets Hyliion apart from the rest of its competitors is its own battery solutions.

It’s the only source of the drivetrain that uses renewable natural gas to recharge its batteries, which occurs en route. It also doesn’t need a complex infrastructure or demands a lot from the grid. This intelligent electric powertrain also provides performance and environmental data, which are utilized in machine learning algorithms that optimize emissions performance and effectiveness.



Its impressive Hyliion Hybrid Electric System has a modular design that can be fitted to any chassis. The Hypertruck ERX in bulk has a huge environmental impact. For example, “a fleet of 389 Hypertruck ERX trucks offsets 100% of the GHG emissions produced in the entire state of California for a full day,” Hyliion notes.
