Hybrid Energy Holdings Reports Demand Increasing as Navistar Pursues Natural Gas for MaxxForce 13 Truck Engines

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - February 18, 2010) -  Hybrid Energy Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HYBE) expects additional demand for Natural Gas based on the recent announcement by Navistar, Inc. that it is developing a Natural Gas model for is popular MaxxForce 13 Engines. Navistar's announcement was reported to be necessary to meet increased customer demand for flexible few options.

Navistar, Inc. is a holding company whose subsidiaries and affiliates produce International brand commercial and military trucks, MaxxForce brand diesel engines, IC Bus brand school and commercial buses, Monaco RV brands of recreational vehicles, and Workhorse brand chassis for motor homes and step vans. It also is a private-label designer and manufacturer of diesel engines for the pickup truck, van and SUV markets.

Natural gas burns more cleanly than other fossil fuels. It has fewer emissions of sulfur, carbon, and nitrogen when it is burned; it leaves almost no ash particles. Being a cleaner fuel and available domestically, without the need for importing foreign oil, are considered the main reasons that the use of Natural Gas has grown so much.

This customer demand in the trucking industry comes on the heels of recent Ford and Honda's natural gas passenger and taxi cab announcements; and validates the Company's aggressive Natural Gas portfolio.

To meet these growing demands, Hybrid Energy recently announced its latest acquisition of 9 properties that consistently deliver profitably with strong recurring current and historical cash-flows. This important expansion of the company's portfolio results in 35,000,000 BCF of known reserves and delivers an estimated $30,000,000 of shareholder value in active reserves and an additional estimated $145,000,000 in yet untapped reserves of current properties.

The Company will provide timely updates as to the progress of this and other Natural Gas acquisition initiatives.
