AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hyliion Holdings Corp. (NYSE: HYLN) (“Hyliion”), a leader in electrified powertrain solutions for Class 8 semi-trucks, today announced that GreenPath Logistics has ordered 50 units backed by deposits to secure Hypertruck ERX™ production slots. After their Ride and Drive experience at Hyliion’s headquarters, the Dallas-based, full-service private fleet—which uses only vehicles powered by alternative fuels—is the first member of the Hypertruck Innovation Council to place an order of Hypertruck ERX™ units.
An early adopter of Hyliion technology, GreenPath Logistics placed an initial order of 20 Hybrid eX units in December 2021 and will collaborate with Hyliion to begin the initial controlled fleet trials for the Hypertruck ERX™ in their operations later this year, where they move freight for notable customers such as Amazon, UPS and the United States Postal Service. With the addition of the GreenPath Logistics order, Hyliion now has 150 Hypertruck ERX™ production slots confirmed, with reservations for nearly 2,000 additional units.
“GreenPath Logistics’ resolute commitment to sustainability and alternative fuels make them an incredibly valuable Hypertruck Innovation Council member, and I’m thrilled that their experience with our powertrain solutions has led to further collaboration and the integration of Hypertruck ERX™ units in their fleet,” said Thomas Healy, Founder and CEO of Hyliion.
“We’re pleased to see corresponding demand for the Hypertruck ERX™ as a result of the Ride and Drive events we’ve hosted. The feedback we’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive, and I look forward to more fleets experiencing the Hypertruck ERX™ and its benefits firsthand,” Healy added.
“Our commitment to sustainability in the transportation industry is built into the very fabric of our business, and we are excited to be able to offer our customers innovative solutions that can make a significant impact in reducing carbon emissions. The deployment of Hypertruck ERX™ units in our operations is a momentous next step in our electrification journey that will benefit the environment, our company and our drivers,” said James Purvis, President, GreenPath Logistics.
