Remy develops progressive concept Heavy Duty hybrid truck

Remy International, Inc has completed a project with Benteler Engineering to develop a progressive concept Heavy Duty hybrid truck for MAN Truck & Bus, one of Europe’s leaders in transport related engineering.

REMY-HD-IMAGEThe vehicle, called the Metropolis, will use Remy’s HVH410 electric traction motor and generator, a customizable assembly that is proven to have the highest efficiency and most power density available. The Metropolis is capable of performing Heavy Duty transport tasks, such as refuse collection, without emissions and almost completely without noise.  A lithium-ion battery drives the HVH410 electric motor, with additional power and range extension supplied by an efficient diesel engine and HVH410 generator.

Remy’s HVH410 motors are the perfect fit in this application. The motors deliver tremendous power and torque, which is what you need in Heavy Duty trucks.  It is also quiet, which is especially important in urban environments.  Partnering with Benteler Engineering is a great opportunity for Remy to show how its electric motors can help meet the growing worldwide demand for sustainable urban vehicles.

Many other hybrid developers and manufacturers are also choosing Remy electric motors. Remy believes that this a powerful endorsement of its products and its commitment to the global hybrid market.
