Revolutionary Simplicity for Hybrid Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Systems

XL industry leading connected fleet electrification HEV and PHEV technology and solutions are available on a wide range of new commercial fleet vehicles from Chevrolet, GMC, Ford, and Isuzu. We take tried-and-true OEM vehicles in commercial classes 2 through 6, and make them more fuel efficient and cleaner, while leaving the OEM powertrain – the engine, transmission, fuel and exhaust systems – completely intact. Our solutions offer a simple and easy way for major fleets to improve MPG without compromising operations.

Both our hybrid and plug-in hybrid technology transform an OEM vehicle into a hybrid vehicle by adding an electric motor, an advanced lithium-ion battery pack, and control software to the vehicle without making significant vehicle modifications or modifying the internal combustion engine or transmission.

Hybrid Electric System

Saves fuel through regenerative braking, a process by which the electric motor helps slow the vehicle during braking, to charge the hybrid battery. Then, when the driver accelerates, the hybrid battery releases the stored energy to the electric motor, helping to propel the vehicle. Our proprietary hybrid controls make the electric motor assist smooth and seamless to the driver and passengers.
