THE HYLO HYBRID CONCEPT
The Hylo concept is a Diesel-Electric Truck allowing for the haulage of longer trailers within UK regualtions, giving an instant payback and incentive to those investing in hybrids.
Electric motors in each wheel provide excellent performance and torque. The engine/generator is packaged behind the cab, so the driver seats lower allowing easier access, exit and ample space for a two level cab, including bunk, that is no taller than a comparative trailer.
The concept recieved 2nd prize in the Designer Techniques international truck design competition and has appeared in Commercial Motor, Truck and Driver and Trucking magazines.
