International Presents its New DuraStar Hybrid Tractor

At the Hybrid Truck Users Forum, held October 14-16, 2008, in South Bend, Indiana, Navistar unveiled its new hybrid truck configuration - the International® DuraStar Hybrid tractor. The Class 7 International DuraStar Hybrid tractor has the capability to provide fuel savings from 20-25% on a standard in pickup and delivery applications.

The International DuraStar Hybrid also reduces the amount of hydrocarbon emissions by up to 33% and nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 35% versus standard diesel trucks.

The parallel-type, diesel-electric hybrid architecture is supplied by Eaton Corporation. It incorporates an electric motor/generator between the output of an automated clutch and input of the automated manual transmission. The hybrid-electric system recovers energy during braking, and can add power back into the driveline during start and acceleration. This capability makes the truck more efficient in stop-and-go driving.
