Massachusetts-based XL Hybrids, which has promoted such major fleet customers as FedEx and Coca-Cola for its hybrid retrofits, and recently said its customers had logged more than a million miles of hybrid operation, showed a Chevrolet Express 2500 cargo van in Pepsi colors at ACT Expo 2104.
XL says that its third-generation XL3 aftermarket drive is available on such cargo vans and wagons as the
Chevy Express 2500/3500;
- GMC Savana 2500/3500; and
- Ford E-150/E-250/E-350;
and on cutaway and strip chassis vehicles including the
- Ford E-350 cutaway;
- Ford E-450 cutaway; and
- Ford E-450 strip chassis.
XL uses a 40-kilowatt permanent magnet traction motor and 1.8-kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery pack from Johnson Controls. The arrangement is said to increase city mileage by 25%.
XL displayed a lithium ion battery pack from Johnson Controls at ACT Expo too.
