Kenworth claims its T370 tractor is the largest hybrid delivery truck on the road in North America.

Kenworth Truck Co.’s largest-ever hybrid-truck order comes from Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) for 150 Kenworth T370 diesel-electric tractors and 35 Kenworth T370 hybrid trucks to be on the road this year. The T370 hybrids are equipped with a Paccar PX-6 engine, rated up to 280 hp (210 kW) and up to 660 lb·ft (895 N·m), and an Eaton diesel-electric hybrid power system. The hybrids feature an integral transmission-mounted motor/generator and frame-mounted 340-V lithium-ion battery pack, and the system is monitored through a dash display. The Kenworth hybrid tractors and trucks will be deployed in several major cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. CCE has already achieved a more than 30% improvement in fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions on its original order of 120 Kenworth T370 hybrid beverage delivery trucks deployed last year.
