Fastest Hybrid Truck in the World - the Mean Green

In April 2012 the Volvo hybrid established new world speed records at Utah’s historic Wendover Airfield, eclipsing its previous marks in the standing kilometer (two-thirds mile) and flying kilometer.

Mean Green achieved the following world record speeds:
- Flying Kilometer –236.577 km/h (147.002 mph)
- Standing Kilometer – 153.252 km/h (95.245 mph)

Though Mean Green’s modified aerodynamic body design bears little resemblance to a freight-hauling tractor, the finely tuned speed machine is comprised almost entirely of production components from Volvo family vehicles, including a North American Volvo VN cab and frame. Mean Green features a highly tuned Volvo D16 engine and a modified version of Volvo’s automated I-Shift gearbox, which interacts with the hybrid’s electric motor. The combination of an electric motor and Volvo D16 diesel engine delivers 2,100 horsepower and nearly 5,000 lb-ft. torque – of which, 200 horsepower and 885 lb-ft. of torque come from the electric motor.
