XL Hybrids, Inc., announced that all-new ship-thru codes are available for its XLH hybrid-electric system on the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans and cutaways. As part of the agreement, fleet managers can order and take delivery of XLH-upfitted Chevrolet and GMC vans starting with 6.0L models. The 4.3L models will be added in the third quarter.

“XL Hybrids is streamlining the path for customers to electrify their Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana fleets in a way that’s simple, cost-effective, and efficient,” said Clay Siegert, chief operating officer for XL Hybrids.

Installation of the XLH hybrid-electric system can be completed in a few hours as a ship-through upfit. XL Hybrids’ ship-through codes offer a choice of installation at Knapheide Manufacturing or Adrian Steel, both located near General Motors’ Wentzville, Mo., assembly plant.

Fleets with XLH technology can enjoy up to a 25% percent increase in fuel economy and accompanying reductions in carbon-dioxide emissions, while still maintaining the base vehicles’ rated power, torque and work capability. XLH technology leaves the GM engine, transmission, fuel system and exhaust system intact. The XLH upfit includes XL Link technology, which collects hundreds of operational data points – such as miles driven, fuel usage, idling time, and average speed – to monitor system health, ensure vehicle uptime, and report MPG performance from the field.
