Class 3 PHEV Truck Arrives from EDI

efficient drivetrainsEfficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI), developer of advanced zero emissions, high-efficiency hybrid and electric drivetrain solutions, has announced the availability of a class 3 utility truck based upon EDI’s world-first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) drivetrain that provides 100% OEM performance and 100% zero emissions during city and highway driving, while also reducing emissions and fuel use by up to 80%, the company says.

The vehicle is built upon one of the most popular Light Duty Class 3 Detroit OEM commercial fleet trucks. It features an extended range of 300 miles, bi-directional charging, 50-120 kW of grid reliable exportable power, and enough battery capacity to operate vehicle accessories and job site work tools without idling the base diesel engine, EDI says.

EDI built their PHEV drivetrain system in response to increasing pressure from the utility industry to “green” their fleets using electricity as a primary fuel. National, state, and local governing bodies are aggressively advancing regulations to evolve towards a zero vehicle emissions future, prompting many utility and telecom fleet operators to seek out solutions that use electricity as a primary fuel. In response, EDI developed a range of medium- and heavy-duty PHEVs that offer significant emissions reductions with no corresponding loss in vehicle performance. Continuing that trend, EDI added a light-duty work truck to its PHEV lineup, giving utility and telecom providers access to a wider range of vehicles to meet their needs. EDI’s utility solution spans class 3 light duty, class 4-6 medium duty, and class 7-8 heavy-duty commercial work trucks, the company says.
