To remain competitive, commercial fleet owners must have vehicles that run longer, leaner and more reliably than ever — while remaining compliant to environmental regulations and being true to their own corporate sustainability goals.

Commercial and delivery vehicles operating in the urban environment operate at speeds below 45 mph with a lot of stop and go driving as shown below. In these scenarios each stop represents an opportunity to regenerate energy back into the battery thereby increasing the overall range of the vehicle while reducing the amount of energy storage that must be carried on board.

XALT Energy is helping to lead the way. We work side by side with fleet owners, operators, system integrators and OEMs to design and deliver lithium-ion systems for a wide variety of vehicles. Our combination of high energy, high power and high-rate charging makes our systems perfectly suited for bus systems and delivery vehicles. Those systems offer:

 

  • Time-tested and proven lithium-ion chemistries 
  • Long cycle life
  • High energy & high power
  • High energy & power density
  • Lower total cost of ownership
XALTEnergyLTOCycleLife

 

 

Our NMC/G cell technology offers an unprecedented balance of energy, power, lifetime performance and safety that is a perfect fit for those vehicles that need to run all day on a single charge.

Our NMC/LTO cell technology offers industry leading cycle life for vehicles that need a slightly smaller battery without sacrificing the ability to charge quickly, multiple times a day.

When you combine either of these cells with our XPAND Modular Pack (XMP) and our system engineering and design services, you get greater system reliability that will last the lifetime of the vehicle. It’s the ideal combination when your success depends on the performance of your fleet.

HybridBus

Electric Buses

Growing urban populations, the emergence of the “Mega City” and high fuel prices have driven significant growth in public transportation. This growth has also led to an increase in smog, pollution and pollution related illnesses in many of these cities. The Electric Bus offers a solution by replacing the traditional internal combustion engine that is most frequently powered by diesel fuel with an electric motor and battery system to provide 100% of the vehicles power needs. With fixed routes and central depot locations to charge, electric buses offer customers a smooth and quiet ride while entirely eliminating smog and pollution and eliminating fuel costs for the operators.

Hybrid Buses

In North American and Europe one of the largest growing segments of public transportation is found in hybridizing the traditional diesel buses. The hybrid bus has the ability to turn off the diesel engine during the frequent stop and go driving and operate the vehicle by battery power alone. And as the vehicle accelerates the engines kick in again and provide the propulsion power. The hybrid bus offers a relatively low cost means of reducing fuel consumption and associated emissions by 25-30% or more.

Medium and Heavy Duty Trucks

Medium and Heavy Duty Trucks range from Class 4 vehicles with Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 14,000 lbs all the way up to Class 7 vehicles with GVWR of 33,000 lbs. These vehicles benefit by the addition of a plug-in hybrid system which will enable reduced fuel costs and, more importantly for service vehicles, the ability to power equipment without running the engine. In these vehicles the battery can operate essentially as an onboard generator.

DeliveryVan2

Delivery Vans

Working day in and day out, electrified delivery vans offer a reliable solution to meeting frequent customer deliveries especially in urban areas where stop and go traffic and frequent stops are the norm. An electric urban delivery fleet offers benefits of reducing fuel costs and meeting Zero Emissions standards which are vital to success. XALT Energy’s unique modular approach allows for an energy storage system approach that can be customized for a specific vehicle and route but with a standard product – meaning that you never carry more energy than you need.
