Check Out What's New in Hybrid Trucks

Berrier Insurance supports forward thinking and going green! With all of the driving that we do, and how many cars and trucks are out on the roads these days some of us worry about our environmental foot prints. Everyday there are new technologies being created and made more readily available to us. We just discovered the new hybrid electric commercial trucks that are being developed by Daimler Truck North America LLC and Wal-Mart. This new truck features a parallel hybrid system based on an electrically driven second drive axle, and uses a lithium-ion-based energy storage and electronic control algorithms that were developed in collaboration with the Daimler Trucks Global Hybrid Center in Japan. While these new trucks were specifically designed to Wal-Mart’s spec’d truck, the 72-inch raised roof Detroit Diesel DD15, DTNA also offers other products powered by alternative technologies, including the Freightliner Business Class M2 106 Hybrid and the Freightliner Business Class M2 112 natural gas lineup.

We are excited to hear that there are more options out there for truckers, we support each of you and want to make sure you are all updated on what is available to you. Make sure that if you decide to buy a new greener truck that you insure it with Berrier Insurance, we specialize in commercial truck insurance and can provide you with the information and services you need. We are dedicated to doing our part to make our world a happier, healthier, and cleaner place.
