Helping to Leave A Greener FootprintEaton’s hybrid power system can provide significant fuel savings and reduce vehicle fuel emissions. Hybrid power and its accompanying low fuel emissions are particularly appealing for Class 6, 7 and 8 vehicles, especially in stop-and-go applications.
Hybrid power provides further savings in frequent engine-off and power take-off operations at a worksite. Whatever the application, hybrid power can provide significant fuel savings, increased functionality, quieter operation and improved performance. The resulting fuel economy alone can cut carbon monoxide (CO), nitrous oxide (NO2) and particulate matter up to 70 percent. Multiply this savings by an entire hybrid fleet, and it is not difficult to see the significant fuel savings.
Customers using Eaton hybrid systems globally have accumulated more than 200 million miles of service, reducing their fuel consumption by 8 million gallons and harmful emissions by 80,000 metric tons.
Our patented electric hybrid power system uses a parallel configuration that maintains the vehicle's conventional drivetrain layout and uses patented controls to blend engine torque with electric torque to move the vehicle.
Each system significantly reduces vehicle fuel consumption and emissions output, and provide other benefits like reduced maintenance and brake replacements costs and noise reduction at work sites.
