Eaton launches production of medium duty truck hybrid systems
The Eaton system is a parallel hybrid architecture that has an electric motor/generator mounted between the automated clutch unit and the transmission. The system is designed to work on diesel-powered trucks and includes regenerative braking capability. Hopefully we will start seeing these systems widely adopted on vehicles like school buses, garbage trucks and other vehicles that have an extensive stop and go duty cycle.
