A medium-duty walk-in van with diesel-electric hybrid technology will be displayed and available for first drives in the next couple months. The new van chassis from Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. was developed along with Eaton and Detroit Diesel. Its debut comes at the Technology and Maintenance Council show in Tampa on Feb. 6. Rides will be offered at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis in early March. The hybrid vans are built on Freightliner's MT-45 chassis. Tests show a 50 percent improvement in fuel economy.
