Loveland, Colo.-based Lightning Hybrids has renamed itself as Lightning Systems and will release several new fleet products this year, including a new vehicle analytics system, the company announced today.
The company has introduced LightningHybrids, a medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicle energy recovery system projected to reduce NOx by 50% and increase fuel savings by 25% for urban driving cycles. It's best suited for delivery trucks, shuttle and paratransit buses, refuse trucks, and rear-engine transit buses. It's available now.
Lightning Systems will offer LightningAnalytics, a cloud-based analytics system that offers fuel efficiency and emissions data and analysis to give fleet managers a better understanding of vehicle efficiency, drive cycles and routes, driver behavior, and maintenance. The product is now available at no charge to existing customers and will be available as a standalone product in the fall.
The company is also moving its corporate headquarters to a larger space that offers 45,000 square feet. The space is nearly double to size of the former facility.
