Ryder rolls out RydeGreen
Hybrid straight truck line
Dec 15, 2008 10:04 AM
Ryder System Inc. has announced the launch of its RydeGreen Hybrid straight truck line, now available for order by lease customers. The Hybrid offering enhances the companyís established line of fuel-efficient RydeGreen tractors and trailers, launched in autumn 2007.
The RydeGreen Hybrid is a medium-duty straight truck, featuring the Navistar MaxxForce DT diesel engine and Eaton Hybrid Electric System integrated into the International DuraStar Hybrid chassis. When traveling at low speeds, the Hybrid electric motor supplies power to the truck, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and emissions. According to International, the truck has the potential to provide up to 30 to 40 percent improved fuel efficiency in standard in-city pick-up and delivery applications. Diesel emissions are reduced when the vehicle is operating in Hybrid mode on battery power.
In addition to the new lease offering, a limited supply of RydeGreen Hybrid straight trucks will be available in January 2009 for rent to commercial customers at select Ryder rental locations in the United States.
