Red Bull Goes Hybrid in Vegas

Red Bull Hybrid Diesel Delivery TrucksRed Bull is about to go hybrid.

Navistar will be delivering a small fleet of diesel hybrid delivery trucks for Red Bull to use.  The four DuraStar hybrid trucks were delivered to Las Vegas this week for use in the Las Vegas metro.

Hybrid delivery trucks make a lot of sense.  Since delivery trucks spend a lot of time in stop and go traffic making deliveries, having the gas engine shut off when the vehicle comes to a stop makes a significant difference in the truck's fuel economy.

The diesel hybrid trucks will achieve 30-40 percent better fuel economy and emit up to 33 percent less hydrocarbon emissions and 35 percent less  nitrogen oxide emissions as compared to a standard diesel truck.

Each truck is estimated to save the company $4,000 in fuel costs per year.  Over a 7-10 year period, the hybrid trucks could save Red Bull $160,000.
