You’ve done your research into XL Hybrids. You’re excited about the fuel savings and sustainability benefits of deploying XL technology. And you’ve ordered your new vehicles with XL3 Hybrid Electric Systems. Now it’s time to decide how you’re going to visually demonstrate your commitment to sustainability.

We recommend you go BIG and go BOLD! Let’s make your vehicles into ‘mobile billboards’ that announce your corporate sustainability leadership.

Adding “hybrid” decals, and/or graphical wraps to your fleet vehicles can deliver big benefits. Green branding shows your customers and community you’re making a meaningful difference in the environment. Vehicle signage strengthens awareness of your company’s brand, business strategy, and products and services.

In fact, the Outdoor Advertising Association of America says that decals and vehicle wraps can create as many as 30,000 to 70,000 impressions a day depending on the location of the vehicle. Whether moving along the highway, parked in front of your business, or picking passengers up, your green-branded vehicles will get noticed.

Yale Chose an Easy-to-Adopt Solution to Reduce Emissions and Exceed Sustainability Goals

Yale at Union Station

Over the last year, Yale University initiated a hybrid-electric vehicle program with XL Hybrids for three Ford 24-passenger shuttle buses. In just 6 months, Yale’s new hybrid buses saved more than 40 metric tons of carbon-dioxide, thanks to a 23% improvement in miles-per-gallon. As a result, Yale has already re-ordered additional Ford shuttles with XL Hybrids technology in 2016.

The MPG improvement data was gathered from the feedback of XL Hybrids’ connectivity system, XL Link™, and Yale’s own analysis. The XL Link technology provides a continuous data link from Yale’s hybrid vehicles and collects hundreds of operational data points, such as miles driven, fuel usage, idling time and average speed. The data is used to proactively monitor XL Hybrids system health, ensure vehicle uptime and report MPG performance in the field.
