Plug-in hybrid system for medium and heavy-duty trucks

advanced hybrid propulsion system

Waukesha, Wis.—Waukesha based Odyne Systems LLC, a manufacturer of hybrid systems for medium- and heavy-duty work trucks, showcased its new advanced hybrid propulsion system at the NTEA (National Truck Equipment Association) show March 6-8 in Indianapolis, Ind. The Odyne Hybrid Power plug-in system is designed to interface with a wide variety of truck mounted equipment, lowering fuel consumption by up to 50 percent, reducing emissions and providing quieter operation at the work site.

Odyne’s plug-in hybrid truck system increases fuel efficiency and power while driving by using a rugged Remy electric motor in parallel with the existing drivetrain to provide launch assist and regenerative braking. At the job site, the Odyne hybrid plug-in battery system, featuring Johnson Controls’ lithium-ion battery packs, powers typical work site applications with the engine off for a much longer time than other commercially available large truck hybrid systems.
