Echo Automotive Takes Reservations for Bolt-On Hybrid Drive
Echo Automotive has launched EchoDrive Premiere as incentive program for advance sales of its EchoDrive add-on plug-in hybrid electric vehicle kit – which is to become available next year, and for which the Arizona- and Indiana-based firm promises fuel savings as great as 50%.
“Fleets looking to increase fuel efficiency, reduce emissions and decrease operating costs by adding plug-in hybrid capability to new or existing Ford E-Series vehicles can now reserve EchoDrive for delivery starting in mid-2014,” the company says.
“Production of 1,000 units will be allocated to the EchoDrive Premiere program, which includes an extended warranty for each unit, first rights to additional production, and installation and services incentives based upon the number of units purchased.”
Under a separate program called EchoAccelerate, developers may license Echo technology “from battery modules and pack technology to designs for a full-size commercial plug-in hybrid van.”
