As Much as 80% of Hybrid Upfit Costs May Be Reimbursed

Owners and operators of eligible trucks that run in the Chicago area can now get up to 80% of the Odyne incremental cost reimbursed.

To qualify for the grant, the converted vehicles must be operated at least 75% of the time in the six-county area including Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will counties.

Odyne notes that its hybrid power system features “proprietary and 
patented technology combining reliable electric
 power conversion, power control and energy storage
technology,” and “lowers fuel consumption by up to 50% compared to traditional diesel or gasoline engines, reduces emissions and provides quieter operation at the work site.

The Odyne plug-in system has Chicago’s approval on vehicles from four Navistar International, Kenworth, Freightliner and Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp.

“The Odyne system is the only one approved to interface with Allison Transmission’s industry leading fully-automatic transmissions and uses a rugged Remy electric motor in parallel with the existing drivetrain to provide launch assist and regenerative braking,” the company says. “At the work site, the Odyne hybrid system has the largest battery and exportable power system options available.

“Odyne continues to be the only plug-in hybrid system on both medium- and heavy-duty trucks to deliver greater fuel efficiency both while driving and at the work site.”
