Designing and Demonstrating a Hybrid Electric Cargo Transport (HECT) Truck

GTI is leading a project to design and demonstrate a heavy-duty hybrid truck that combines an electric vehicle with a near-zero compressed natural gas (CNG) engine to extend its range. The Hybrid Electric Cargo Transport (HECT) truck has a Kenworth chassis that integrates a BAE electric propulsion and power system.

The truck has been designed, built, tested, and installed, and undergone extensive operational testing. Training of end users, support staff, and first responders is an important aspect of this demonstration. The truck will operate at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in late 2018. Support for the project has been provided by DOE Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD).
