Freightliner ... Its loaded 65,000-pound semi returned 12.2 mpg during a real world highway test, 115 percent better than the average truck on the road today.

A local Uniform/Linen supplier has been running 100 Ford Hybrid Walk-in Vans for a few years now, I see them around our area.

There is more info on the SuperTruck here: http://www.greencarr...-fuel-efficient

Daimler is the one who developed it with the help of a $40 million Federal grant.

UPS has some hybrid delivery trucks in MN. Many of the UPS/FedEx trucks here run on natural gas. The semi is really neat. I wonder why it isn't street legal as designed.

Semi trucks have a lot of safety features that have to be part of the rig. All the brakes use compressed air which is produced off a direct drive compressor on the diesel engine.  It could be that the hybrid semi may not have a constant run direct drive compressor, and that would make it not legal for the streets.
