It’s the Holidays and that means Christmas trees are being delivered and decorated at a plethora of famous locations. The New York Stock Exchange, the center of the financial universe, received their tree on Black Friday via a delivery powered by the Hyliion Hypertruck ERX and its driver, Thomas Healy, Hyliion’s founder and CEO.
First time electric truck used to make NYSE’s holiday tree delivery
Hyliion is holding a bit of a publicity campaign in NYC, delivering the NYSE’s Christmas Tree, an 11,000 pound, 70 foot tall Norway Spruce from Wallkill, NY. The silent entrance in front of the Stock Exchange caught the attention of the media.
Healy had this to say about the delivery in a comment on LinkedIn:
“I had the pleasure of driving an ~80-foot tall Christmas tree to the NYSE for it to be displayed throughout the holiday season. While this is the 99th year that a tree will be on display, it is the first time the tree has been delivered with an emissions friendly, electric semi-truck. We used our Hyliion Hypertruck ERX powertrain which is a fully electric drive solution that utilizes a natural gas generator to recharge the batteries while driving. It was a pleasure to work in partnership with the NYSE to make this delivery happen and to showcase the future of clean trucking!”Thomas Healy, Founder/CEO of Hyliion
