Plug-in Hybrid Technology
At Rowland Emergency, we fully understand the impact that the vehicles have on the environment. We are doing our part to try to lesson this by providing plug-in hybrid technology for emergency vehicles. Ultimately, we would like to help Emergency Medical Services reach their long-term community sustainability plan aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting low-carbon transportation.
HOW IT WORKS
XL Fleet has pioneered a plug-in hybrid system that is revolutionary in its simplicity. In addition to regenerative braking, the Plug-in Hybrid (XLP) features a high-voltage, 15 kWh lithium battery pack that provides a ‘shared propulsion’ with the OEM powertrain to significantly improve MPG and reduce fuel consumption. XLP is compatible with Level 1 and Level 2 charging and has no special maintenance requirements.
