The StarShip, a hybrid Class 8 semi truck co-developed by Shell Lubricants and the Airflow Truck Company, is aiming for a fuel economy record on a coast-to-coast drive in May.

Its trek will start in San Diego, Calif. and end in Jacksonville, Fla. carrying 50,000 pounds of goods. Its driver will be Robert Sliwa, former regional trucker, and owner of the Airflow Truck Company,  sponsored by the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE), who will log the truck’s fuel economy at the end of its trip.

Specifications on the Starship include a Cummins X15 six-cylinder diesel engine delivering 400 horsepower and 1850 pound-feet of torque. It also used an 18-speed automated manual transmission using Shell’s own synthetic oil. In the future, it will own a hybrid electric axle system, which will replace its existing rear-tractor non-driven axle, with no timetable given or if the trip will incorporate one.  No word on its current fuel economy numbers, but SHell should have some to provide after its record attempt.

Other fuel efficiency-centric features include an aerodynamic front body, active shutter grilles to optimize airflow, side skirts, and a lightweight carbon fiber construction with absurdly long curvature, which helps with wind resistance. On the top, 5,000 solar panels deliver power to its sleeper cab.

Shell Lubricants, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, is a producer of lubricants used in the automotive, mining, and power industries. It produces popular oil products Pennzoil and Quaker State, working alongside automakers such as Ferrari and BMW to test its oil products in racing applications.
