T270 & T370 Hybrid
Kenworth T270 & T370 Hybrid
A commitment to environmental stewardship, fuel efficiency, and serious hauling.
The new Kenworth Medium Duty T270 and T370 Hybrids are powered by the PACCAR PX-6 engine and include an integral transmission mounted motor/generator, a frame-mounted 340-volt battery pack, and a dedicated power management system, creating a unique fuel efficient system.
In slower, stop-and-go traffic, the parallel hybrid power system developed in partnership with Eaton, acts as an electric motor utilizing power from the battery pack. The system automatically switches between the two modes of operation. Stored electricity provides nearly 60 horsepower with 310 foot-pounds of torque.
The Kenworth Hybrid uses braking events called "regenerative braking" to generate and store electricity. Electrical power is then used for acceleration, assisting the diesel engine. The T270 and T370 Hybrid can also be built with an electric power-take-off (ePTO). The ePTO allows energy to be drawn from the batteries for engine-off operation.
Inside is an ergonomically-friendly, wrap-around instrument panel with large, easy-to-read, glare-free gauges. The fully trimmed cab is quiet with no doghouse, which helps to greatly reduce interior noise. Standard features include power door locks, passenger-side electric windows (optional on the driver's side), and Kenworth DayLite doors with peeper window. Drivers will also appreciate the 50-degree wheel cut for excellent maneuverability.
