A leader in advanced battery, fuel cell, and hybrid electric vehicles, announced the launch of near-zero-emission natural gas-powered parallel hybrid powertrain technology to be used for drayage and long-haul trucks this week.

After six years of research, development, and rigorous testing, US Hybrid, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ideanomics Inc. (NASDAQ: IDEX, Forum) is ready to unveil new vehicle-agnostic technology that can deliver more power, increased range, and a more efficient powertrain than diesel-powered engines or other CNG or renewable natural gas (RNG) alternatives.

An industry first, this technology aims to add near-zero-emission road-side charging assistance to standard long-haul fleet operators, offering versatility and convenience to fleet customers.

Highlights:

  • More Power: 640 hp combined power and 1770 lb-ft maximum torque from the natural gas-powered engine. The electric motor enables uphill acceleration with superior performance compared to its diesel engine alternatives
  • Less Fuel: A smaller 8.9 liters Near-Zero NOx engine will operate more efficiently, resulting in double fuel economy than a standard 15-liter engine and reducing fueling costs
  • Better Range: Preliminary testing suggests this fuel-efficient technology can deliver up to 1,000 miles of range per fuel fill, doubling range, power, and torque for similar CNG/RNG trucks
  • Increased Efficiency: The improvement in CNG engine performance paralleled with the electric motor, with appropriate controls, for transient load uptake results in lower NOx emissions and lower fuel consumption
  • Near-Zero-Emission: Our technology emits lower than 0.02 g/bhp-hr of nitrogen dioxide and will significantly improve the air quality of neighborhoods near ports and warehouses
  • Zero-Emission Port and Harbor Transportation Operations: Our technology delivers a lower HSE (Health, Safety, and Environmental) impact on port operations and the surrounding communities

In a media release on this news for investors, US Hybrid’s Interim CEO, Macy Neshati called this another milestone on the company’s path to accelerate the transition to commercial electrification.

“US Hybrid spends years perfecting our technology before it is brought to market. Our pathway to commercialization delivers a proven solution backed by data. Fleet customers can feel confident in the performance and reliability of US Hybrid's new powertrain. Attendees at the ACT Expo will see firsthand, end-user benefits: increased vehicle range, less fuel requirements, and the reduced total cost of ownership.”
