Hybrid Ambulance

The XL Hybrids system components bolt in place using existing hardware, existing holes, or remounting points in the frame, and the electronics plug into the OBD-II port under the dash, according to Levi Clark, senior automotive engineer for Seattle. The vehicles have no range limitations, no plug-in requirements, no driver training requirements, and no compromises in terms of acceleration or braking, he added.

Within the next six months to a year, the fleet will evaluate the return on investment, greenhouse gas reductions, and maintenance items and repair frequencies compared to the non-hybrid gasoline ambulances in the fleet.
