Company: Kenworth Truck Company

The Kenworth Class 7 hybrid can carry a payload of up to 16,000 pounds, features a PACCAR PX-6 240 hp engine, integral transmission-mounted motor/generator, frame-mounted 340-volt battery, and dedicated power management system. Above 30 mph, the Kenworth hybrid operates like a standard diesel vehicle with all power coming from the engine during steady driving conditions. Below 30 mph, it uses a combination of diesel and electricity with the system automatically switching between the two modes of operation. Electricity generated through regenerative braking is stored and used for acceleration, assisting the diesel engine. In addition to the medium duty hybrid, Kenworth’s dedication to the green fleet also includes the Kenworth Clean Power no-idle system, EPA SmartWay program, and Kenworth T800 liquefied natural gas (LNG) trucks.
