Mitsubishi Fuso Canter Eco Hybrid
  • Light truck with hybrid drive
  • First series-production hybrid truck from Daimler Trucks
  • Around 200 units produced within one year or so
Mitsubishi Fuso has certainly attracted attention with the Canter Eco Hybrid: the first series-production truck with hybrid drive from Daimler Trucks was the first truck in its class to meet the current, extremely stringent exhaust emission standards in Japan. Around 200 units have since been produced. An automated manual transmission saves weight.

Mitsubishi Fuso Canter Eco Hybrid
  • Fleet trials with hybrid trucks in Europe
  • Powertrain adapted to European exhaust emissions legislation
  • 10 vehicles to be tested in two fleets for three years
In the new year the first fleet trials with several hybrid trucks in Europe will commence with a European variant of the Canter Eco Hybrid from Japan. 10 exam­ples will prove their worth in a number of fleets over a period of three years. The new hybrid powertrain consists of a 145 hp Euro 4 engine combined with a 35 kW electric motor.

Mitsubishi Fuso Aero Star Eco Hybrid
  • New, second-generation hybrid bus presented in September 2007
  • Mitsubishi Fuso: first hybrid-drive bus in Asia
  • Downsized with compact four-cylinder diesel engine
The Mitsubishi Fuso Aero HEV has been in daily operation in three municipal fleets in Japan. Five vehicles have so far driven 150,000 km each without problems. At the end of September Mitsubishi Fuso presented the second generation under the designation Aero Star Eco Hybrid. On the downsizing principle, the revised drive system technology of this serial hybrid now has a compact four-cylinder diesel engine with a displacement of only 4.9 litres. Each of the two electric motors has an output of 79 kW. The diesel engine switches off at bus stops, and the bus moves off under electric power alone. All the peripheral units are now electrically driven.

Freightliner M2 Hybrid
  • Electrically powered power take-off for platform hoist
  • Pre-series of 150 hybrid trucks planned for 2009
  • Two vehicles successfully undergoing fleet trials
This medium truck from Freightliner demonstrates the possibilities of a hybrid-drive system: mounted equipment can also be electrically driven via a power take-off – quietly and without harmful emissions. In this case a platform hoist for mainte­nance work on power lines. This vehicle is currently undergoing fleet trials. Freight­liner is currently planning a series of 150 M2 units with a hybrid-drive system for 2008, with series production to begin in 2009. The diesel engine is of European origin and configured for the American exhaust emission standards.

Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation Hybrid
  • Chassis for courier services in series production
  • Reliability and economy demonstrated in long-term trials
  • European diesel engine to American standards
A Freightliner chassis with a parallel hybrid-drive system for heavy vans in the typical urban courier and distribution sectors in North America is already in series production. The drive system has demonstrated its reliability and economy in extended customer trials over a period of three years: an availability rate of 99 percent shows the enormous capabilities of the hybrid-drive system. The diesel engine is based on the European OM 904, but has been configured for the North American exhaust emission standards. More than 100 vehicles are already in operation.

Thomas Built Buses Hybrid C2 School Bus
  • Parallel hybrid like the Freightliner truck
  • Downsized with compact diesel engine
  • Electric components in the frame area
With an annual production of around 15,000 vehicles, the American brand Thomas Built Buses is the world’s largest manufacturer of school buses. These vehicles are often in operation in very emissions-sensitive areas. The Thomas Built Buses Hybrid C2 School Bus with a hybrid-drive system combines economy with environmental compatibility. Like the heavy vans and trucks by Freightliner, Thomas Built Buses uses a parallel hybrid system. Owing to the additional electric drive system, the bus only requires a compact diesel engine. The electric components of the hybrid-drive system are accommodated in the frame area, and easily accessible.

Mercedes-Benz Citaro CNG
  • Natural gas engines meet EEV standards and operate particularly quietly
  • Citaro CNG awarded the "Blue Environmental Angel" by the Federal Environment Agency
  • Sophisticated refuelling infrastructure required
Natural gas engines have already been an alternative to the diesel engine for several years, and several hundred Citaro and Citaro G buses with this technology are in operation throughout Europe. They meet the Euro 4 or EEV standards, and have been awarded the "Blue Angel" for their environmental compatibility. The engines have a high output thanks to turbocharging, and operate on the spark-ignition principle. A sophisticated refuelling infrastructure is still required for such vehicles.

Orion VII HybriDrive
  • Orion is the world market leader for hybrid buses
  • More than 1000 vehicles in regular, day-to-day operation
  • Collective annual mileage now around 50 million kilometres
The world market leader for buses with hybrid-drive systems comes from North America, is called Orion and is part of Daimler Buses. Orion produced its first hybrid buses as early as 1995, and more than one thousand units of its current model are in regular daily service. The number is set to increase to more than 1500 hybrid buses during the coming year. The serial hybrid-drive system reduces fuel con­sumption by around 25 percent. Orion hybrid buses have proved to be even more reliable than comparable diesel-powered buses, and collectively cover an annual mileage of around 50 million kilometres.

Mercedes-Benz Actros 1846
  • First series-production truck to meet emission standard Euro 5
  • Economical and clean thanks to BlueTec technology
  • Around 100,000 trucks with BlueTec technology already in operation
The enormous development potential of the classic diesel engine is demonstrated by the Mercedes-Benz Actros, Axor and Atego trucks with engines featuring BlueTec technology. SCR technology with exhaust gas aftertreatment by an oxi­dising catalytic converter and the addition of AdBlue provides the basis for optimi­sed combustion and compliance with exhaust emission standard Euro 5. Accor­ding­ly Mercedes-Benz trucks are recognised as the both the most economical and clea­nest trucks, as numerous tests and practical fleet experience have confirmed. In series production since the end of 2004, around 100,000 trucks with this econo­mical BlueTec technology are already in operation throughout Europe.
