NYC gets world 1st electric hybrid street sweeper

NYC gets world 1st electric hybrid street sweeper

Residents of the NYC who rise early will soon be able to see the Allianz 4000 hit the streets. This is touted to be the world’s first hybrid street sweeper, where it will have a 200 horsepower diesel engine that is aided by a couple of 12 volt lithium-ion batteries. With such mechanisms under the hood, the Allianz 4000 is capable of touching speeds of up to 60 miles per hour, while achieving 40% in fuel savings when compared to non-hybrid sweepers. The engine is 6.7 l Cummins ISB 200, 6 cylinder, turbocharged. Electrical drive with two speed differential final drive provides constant broom speed independent of vehicle speed or direction. The work speed is 0-14 mph.

Allianz Sweeper Company Vice President, Walter Pusic, comments "This was not easy, and other manufacturers have had little positive outcome or success in capturing the correct technology blend to actually make it happen. Allianz Sweeper Company has been aggressive and diligent to incorporate current state-of-the-art electric hybrid technology to successfully accomplish our stringent goals to provide the industry with this incredible machine with no-compromise. It is time to make a difference, and the Allianz 4000 Electric Hybrid is the game changer." Will we see the Allianz 4000 prowl other city streets apart from New York in the future? Only time will tell.
