XL Hybrids Inc. says customers that are using the company's XL3 hybrid-electric powertrain in their service, delivery and cargo fleets have notched a total of 1 million miles of operation in the first six months of the XL3's commercial availability.
These fleets are now logging an average of over 200,000 miles per month in their XL3-equipped vehicles, the company adds.
‘The fact that one million miles was reached so quickly indicates our customers are taking full advantage of the reduction in fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions,’ says Tod Hynes, president and founder of XL Hybrids. ‘Another reason we achieved the one million milestone so quickly is that our customers had virtually 100 percent availability of their hybrid electric vehicles.’
Corporate fleets such as Coca-Cola and FedEx are among the early adopters of XL Hybrids' powertrains.
