Daimler, Walmart Team Up on Hybrid Truck

Daimler Trucks North America announced Monday that it has partnered with Walmart to build a hybrid electric truck, the first fruit of a new, long-term partnership between the two companies to develop green technologies.

The diesel-equipped truck features a parallel hybrid system based on an electric second axle. The system uses advanced battery storage technology.

Walmart is a long-time customer of Portland-based Daimler Trucks North America and will act as an engineering partner to the company going forward.

"Walmart is partnering with our suppliers like Daimler Trucks North America to develop technologies that will improve the efficiency and lessen the impact of our operations. These partnerships help to prove out these technologies and speed up the time to market," said Chris Sultemeier, senior vice president of transportation for Walmart, in a press release.  Courtesy of Sustainable Business Oregon
