On the heels of the Cummins partnership announcement, Hyliion and NFI Industries put out a press release regarding NFI’s plans to purchase 10 HyperTruck ERX, backed with deposits for the production calendar slots.
This comes after NFI, a HyperTruck Innovation Council member, had a “Ride and Drive Experience” at Hyliion’s headquarters. Both company leaders made statements at the announcement:
“With an approach to sustainability from a strategic perspective, NFI’s commitment to tracking and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions makes them a strong HyperTruck Innovation Council member and a clear leader in the drive toward a zero-emission transportation industry. I’m thrilled they have selected the HyperTruck ERX as an avenue in reducing their carbon footprint as they continue to push forward with scalable sustainability initiatives,”Thomas Healy, Founder and CEO of Hyliion
James O’Leary, Vice President of Assets at NFI
“NFI has been providing logistics solutions for 90 years, and our commitment to sustainability initiatives will allow us to continue to serve our valued customers for decades to come. By investing in green technology like the HyperTruck ERX, we’re able to take another transformative step toward a zero-emissions freight industry, and I look forward to seeing the impact these HyperTruck ERX units will have in further reducing our carbon footprint,”
