Abstract

The Plug-In Hybrid Medium-Duty Truck Demonstration and Evaluation Program was sponsored by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) funding as well as the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD). The purpose of the program was to develop a path to mitigate plug-in hybrid vehicle technology to medium-duty vehicles by demonstrating and evaluating in diverse applications. The program allows the fleets to develop interest in the technology. The 62 participants have deployed these vehicles into the field with their operators to achieve real—life experience with the vehicles in 23 different states. A total of 296 vehicles were delivered to the field prior to July 2015. This paper provides the results from the analysis of the data generated by these vehicles.
