With their low-to-moderate speed and frequent stop/start driving pattern, delivery trucks can reap some of the highest benefits of the switch to hybrid. Instead of constant, inefficient, low-speed engine revving, a Chorus series hybrid architecture uses the Chorus motor to deliver power to the drive wheels, while a streamlined internal combustion engine can function solely as a highly-efficient electrical generator, running in only one of several discrete "sweet spots" that maximize fuel efficiency. The high start up torque of a Chorus motor is perfectly suited for frequent starts and stops.

Mail, service, sanitation trucks and other commercial and government vehicles can benefit from the fuel- and maintenance-savings unlocked by a Chorus drivetrain solution. City buses can be propelled exclusively by a quiet Chorus electric motor without the need for an expensive and repair-prone transmission.
