Hybrid Truck Hits the Streets in Suwanee

March 7, 2007

SUWANEE, GA – The City of Suwanee has taken delivery of a hybrid version of a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado pickup, according to the Web site www.accessnothga.com. The gasoline/electric hybrid has a V-8 engine and three extra 14-volt batteries. When the truck slows to less than 13 miles per hour or is idling, the battery-powered electrical system takes over. Suwanee Public Works Supervisor Rodney Beck said it’s really designed to conserve energy in city traffic.
