Coke Expands Hybrid Fleet

Coke hybrid vanCoca-Cola is converting its 100 newly purchased 2014 Chevrolet Express service vans into fuel-efficient hybrid electric vehicles using XL Hybrids’ powertrain technology.

The updated vans will be traversing roads across the country by year’s end, the beverage giant says.

Coca-Cola says it currently operates the largest heavy-duty hybrid electric delivery fleet in North America.

The hybrid technology supports the company’s goal to reduce the carbon footprint embedded in “the drink in your hand” by 25 percent by 2020.

Early test results of this hybrid technology show a 15 to 20 percent fuel reduction compared to the company’s conventional vans. Coke expects the 100 new hybrid vans to eliminate about 4,000 total tons of CO2 emissions that conventional vans would produce over their 10-year life span.

As a result of the low maintenance and fuel savings, the powertrain unit pays for itself three times over its life span.
