Hyliion, a firm specialising in electrified powertrain systems, has teamed up with American Natural Gas (ANG) to offer Hyliion customers discounted renewable natural gas (RNG) at ANG fuelling stations across the US.
For qualifying fleet customers, ANG has agreed to build new fuelling stations near Hyliion customer locations, with no upfront capital costs to customers.
The two firms have also entered into a sales agreement that includes a pre-order of up to 250 Hypertruck ERX vehicles, allowing for early availability of Hyliion’s fully electric powertrain to ANG and its fleet customers.
Using RNG, the Hypertruck ERX is an electric solution for Class 8 vehicles that offers a net-negative carbon emissions profile and the lowest total cost of ownership over the life of the vehicle compared to current competitive offerings.
Drew West, CEO and founder of ANG, said: “As a leading supplier of RNG, we are committed to helping our customers – which include more than 200 fleets and several of the nation’s largest fleets – choose greener, more efficient fuel alternatives while improving the overall fuelling experience for drivers across the country.
“With the Hypertruck ERX, fleets can leverage RNG – the last carbon-intensive fuel – to reduce their carbon footprint, achieve corporate sustainability goals, and realise critical cost savings.”
“A robust and highly scalable infrastructure is critical to the adoption of our electrified stations,” commented Thomas Healy, CEO and founder of Hyliion. “That’s why we’re working with ANG to reduce costs and enable us to offer our customers refuelling stations where they are needed.
“Hyliion customers can continue their journeys to electrification with confidence that RNG will be available at a price that can reduce their ownership costs over the lifetime of their vehicles.”
