Greenkraft Receives Grant to Develop CNG-PHEV Class 4 Truck
On Monday, Greenkraft announced that the California Energy Commission (CEC) approved Greenkraft’s and Efficient Drivetrains’ (EDI) joint application for a grant to develop a CNG-hybrid electric vehicle. The CEC through its Energy Research and Development Division jointly awarded funding of up to $900,000 for the development of a Class 4 vehicle that combines the benefits of Greenkraft’s CNG trucks and EDI’s plugin hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) technology. Greenkraft will supply the natural gas powered truck to EDI for the project. EDI will then integrate Greenkraft’s natural gas truck with its PHEV powertrain.
