The Hypertruck Karno by Hyliion

USA – At the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Anaheim, California, held between 1-4 May 2023, Hyliion Holdings Corp of Cedar Park, Texas unveiled a Class 8 demonstration vehicle based on the ‘Hypertruck ERX’ hybrid powertrain and installed with a fuel-agnostic generator which can take over twenty different inputs, including hydrogen.
