ThyssenKrupp Elevator reports the recent addition of hybrid electric vehicles and a compressed natural gas truck to its diverse fleet.

The company has previously publicized its use of propane autogas for more than 70 company vehicles in five states through PERC, the Propane Education & Research Council (F&F, February 3).

ThyssenKrupp Elevator is using a variety of clean vehicle technologies to help reduce its environmental footprint.

ThyssenKrupp says it’s fitted hybrid conversion kits by XL Hybrids to vehicles in Atlanta, Dallas and Boston.

“The XL3 Hybrid Electric Drive System adds an electric motor, an advanced lithium ion battery pack, and sophisticated control software to vehicles and delivers a 25% increase in miles driven per gallon while reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” the elevator company said.

3,200 Vehicles in All

ThyssenKrupp is using a CNG vehicle for company service mechanics at the Denver International Airport. “This type of fuel is a good choice for high-mileage, centrally-fueled fleets that operate within a limited area such as an airport,” the company said.

“Reducing petroleum use in our 3,200-vehicle fleet is our most significant environmental impact to date,” ThyssenKrupp Elevator Americas sustainability VP Brad Nemeth said in a release. “By October 2013, we saved over 710,000 gallons of gas and 115,000 gallons of diesel over our 2010 baseline,” he said.

“The addition of the hybrid conversion and CNG technology will give us another tool to improve fuel efficiency.”
