New Strategic Relationship for PP320-689-LP Vigor+ Lithium Packs

Indiana’s EnerDel has entered a strategic relationship for EnerDel’s PP320-689-LP Vigor+ brand lithium ion packs to be offered as a replacement for the factory nickel metal hydride packs in buses with Allison hybrid electric drives.

King County Metro is among the agencies moving to replace the nickel metal hydride batteries from Panasonic on its Allison drive New Flyer hybrid buses with Vigor brand lithium ion battreries from EnerDel.

EnerDel has been supplying its more powerful Vigor+ energy storage systems to agencies including the Seattle Area’s King County Metro (F&F, July 15).

“Entering into a relationship with Allison further solidifies our position as the Lithium-ion ESS solutions provider of choice in the hybrid bus market,” EnerDel strategic applications director Ben Wrightsman said in a release.

‘Continued Traction’

“We look forward to continued traction in this market as transit authorities look to upgrade their aging fleets,” Wrightsman said.

“With EnerDel’s Vigor+ battery pack designed to integrate with the Allison Hybrid H 40/50 EP system, we’re pleased to have this relationship expand the options available in the marketplace for customers of the Allison Hybrid system,” Allison Transmission hybrid product line teams director Phil Bettner says in the EnerDel announcement.
