Operators Have Avoided the Use of 44,000 Gallons of Gasoline
XL Hybrids trumpeted a total of 25 million customer road miles at ACT Expo, stating that operators have collectively eliminated the use of more than 440,000 gallons of gasoline.
XL Hybrids offers the XL3 hybrid electric drive, an aftermarket system that requires no driver training or special fuels, yet “delivers immediate cost savings with a 25% increase in miles per gallon.
“The number of fleet vehicles using XL Hybrids’ technology is increasing significantly as we work with major fleets, including the Coca-Cola Company, AmeriPride Service and the City of Boston, and gain new clients, such as BMC Stock and Yale University,” said Clay Siegert, co-founder and chief operating officer for XL Hybrids.
In addition to paring fuel use by close to half a million gallons, XL customers have:
- reduced carbon dioxide emissions by more than 4,000 tons;
- saved 3,500 hours of driver productivity with fewer stops for fuel fills; and
- experienced 99.9 plus percent vehicle uptime.
XL3 upfits are compatible with new and existing Class 2 to 6 commercial fleet vehicles. The equipment can be installed in less than six hours, after which “it works seamlessly in the background with zero impact on fleet operations or service.”
The XL3 drive is available on seven OEM platforms, including the Chevy Express/GMC Savana vans, Ford Transit vans, Ford and GM cutaway/stripped chassis vehicles including low floor shuttle bus modified chassis, Class 5-6 Ford F59 stripped chassis, and the Reach commercial diesel van by Isuzu and Utilimaster.
