Honda Testing Hybrid Class 8 Diesel Truck


Honda’s North American sales and distribution arm is testing a hybrid diesel truck built by Paccar Inc., incorporating a Peterbilt Model 386 truck, according to IndustryWeek.

Honda claims the truck should reduce carbon dioxide emissions about 45 tons a year, as compared to its diesel counterpart.

Honda hauls service parts between its parts centers and dealerships, using a number of Class 8 trucks.

To evaluate fuel economy under a variety of driving conditions, the hybrid truck test will occur along a hilly route in Tennessee and a flat jaunt in Georgia. A conventional diesel truck will also run the routes, to provide an accurate comparison.

Paccar has an advanced hybrid vehicle program. The powertrain of this particular truck uses an Eaton hybrid engine.

  1. An OEM can increase horsepower without burning more fuel , or changing the size of the engine. With a projected fuel savings of anywhere from 10% TO 35 %. That is a cleaner enviroment, less emissions, less fuel burned , less fatique on the driver and stain on the truck. It just might be we may all live longer !
