When Energy Positively Has to Be There
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

ST. CLOUD, MN, Sept. 28, 2017 /CNW/ - (TSX: NFI) New Flyer of America Inc. ("New Flyer"), the U.S. subsidiary of New Flyer Industries Inc. (the "Company"), the largest transit bus and motor coach manufacturer and parts distributor in North America, today announced...
We knew integrating the battery-electric bus on the proven Xcelsior platform using experienced component and systems suppliers, was essential to provide transit agencies the opportunity to enhance their in-service uptime. The integration of the Siemens ELFA drive motor and lithium-ion battery packs from XALT Energy into the XE40 resulted in outstanding performance and we experienced no propulsion or battery issues throughout the entire test program. Unscheduled repair labor hours for the Xcelsior XE40 were significantly lower than any other electric buses tested at Altoona.
The Results Were Amazing
The Xcelsior XE40 electric bus successfully completed the rigorous Altoona test, verifying its safety, structural integrity, reliability, performance, maintainability, noise and fuel economy. This is the first application of its kind to meet the extensive Altoona durability and reliability requirements. The bus was driven 15,000 miles under three different loading conditions and with the addition of seven different stress elements, simulating events likely to occur during transit. The XALT Energy battery packs powering the bus performed flawlessly and exhibited no issues throughout the duration of the test.
