(SEYMOUR) - Cummins Inc. has received a $4.5 million U.S. Department of Energy grant to develop a Class 6 commercial plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that can reduce fuel consumption by at least 50 percent over conventional Class 6 vehicles.

According to a press release, typical examples of a Class 6 vehicle would be school buses or single-axle work trucks weighing 19,000 to 26,000 pounds when fully loaded.

Cummins, based in Columbus, is partnering with PACCAR, which designs and manufactures light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks under the Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF nameplates for the project.
