Mack Trucks delivered the first diesel-electric hybrid refuse truck to the U.S. Air Force Advanced Power Technology office.
The TerraPro hybrid has a rear loading refuse packer body and is equipped with a 325 hp
“The vehicles we're producing under this partnership are a key stepping stone to offering commercially viable hybrid electric vehicles to our customers,” says Dennis Slagle, Mack president and CEO.
After the Air Force reviews and tests the TerraPro hybrid, they will provide it to the City of Macon, Georgia, for continued testing in municipal waste collection. The testing is part of an agreement between the Air Force, the City of Macon and the Clean Cities Coalition of Georgia.
