Hyliion Holdings Corp., a leader in electrified solutions for Class 8 semi-trucks, and Cummins Inc., a global power solutions provider, announced the two companies together have successfully obtained the Dual Executive Order from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for the Hypertruck ERX powertrain paired with the Cummins ISX12N engine.
“This certification is pivotal to commercializing our Hypertruck ERX powertrain and enables us to provide our customers with a solution that supports their sustainability goals.
