Volvo Testing Long-haul Hybrid Semi-truck Concept

Volvo Trucks is testing a long-haul truck with a hybrid powertrain aimed towards reducing emissions and fuel consumption by 30 percent. Key to the truck’s design is its “engine braking” system that recovers energy on the downhill, returning it to a battery pack for later use by the hybrid-electric drivetrain like a Toyota Prius or other hybrid car would do.
