Red Bull is one of the latest companies to take delivery of hybrid trucks, according to Navistar, which delivered four International DuraStar delivery trucks to the company earlier this week.

They are the first hybrid trucks to be integrated into Red Bull’s fleet. The hybrid-electric trucks are expected to provide fuel savings of 30-40%, Navistar said in a release. Each truck could save Red Bull as much as US$4,000 per year in fuel costs. The trucks will be used in the Las Vegas metro area.

“We’re proud that Red Bull recognizes the importance of green transportation for the environment,” said Jim Williams, director, sales and distribution, new products, Navistar. “We need more companies like this to take a stance and add hybrid vehicles to their fleets.”
