XL fleet electrification systems reach 100M customer miles driven

XL announced that its customers have cumulatively driven 100 million miles using the company’s hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric drive systems. Founded in 2009, the fleet electrification pioneer recently celebrated its tenth anniversary, and has been tracking critical usage and sustainability metrics on its vehicles with the XL Link telematics program throughout that time, including miles driven, gallons of fuel saved, CO2 emissions eliminated, and more.

Since 2009, XL has electrified the fleets of some of the largest and most recognized companies, municipalities and organizations in North America. One of XL’s first customers, Coca-Cola, has deployed nearly 300 hybrid electric GMC Chevy Express vans to its fleet since 2012.

XL recently examined the data from the first ten Coca-Cola vehicles deployed between 2012-2013. The vehicles are still on the road today and have driven an average of 150,000 miles each—one van has more than 215,000—with an average MPG improvement of 20.2% over their lifetime.

With the fleet-ready XLH hybrid electric drive system and the XLP plug-in hybrid electric drive system, Class 2 to 6 commercial and municipal customers can increase fuel economy by between 25 to 50 percent and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by between 20 to 33 percent, decreasing operating costs and meeting sustainability goals with zero impact on fleet operations.

XL works with Ford, General Motors and Isuzu to electrify thousands of commercial trucks, vans and shuttles.

Good start but still a very low % of total?
