Lightning Hybrids rebrands to Lightning Systems

Posted on May 4, 2017

Loveland, Colo.-based Lightning Hybrids announced it will change its name to Lightning Systems, effective immediately. Lightning Systems also announced that in the next two years it will introduce a new lineup of fleet efficiency products to support commercial and government fleets.

To keep up with demand, support manufacturing of new products, and to service its customers, Lightning Systems also will be moving its corporate headquarters to the Rocky Mountain Center for Innovation & Technology in Loveland at Southwest 14th Street and Taft Avenue. The new space has 45,000 square-feet, nearly doubling the size of the company's existing headquarters.

Lightning Systems announced that its current portfolio of product offerings will include:

  • LightningAnalytics: A new cloud-based, analytics system that offers precise fuel efficiency and emissions data and analysis for unrivaled understanding and optimization of fleet vehicle efficiency, drive cycles and routes, driver behavior, and vehicle maintenance. The system is available now with the Lightning Hybrids system and will be available standalone in fall 2017.
  • LightningHybrids: A medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicle energy recovery system that offers 50% NOx reductions and up to 25% fuel savings for urban drive cycles. Applications include delivery trucks, shuttle and paratransit buses, refuse trucks, and rear-engine transit buses. The system is available now, worldwide on more than 25 platforms.
  • A variety of new Lightning Systems' fuel-efficiency and emissions improvement innovations will be introduced over the next two years. All products will leverage the LightningAnalytics system to validate efficiency results for fleets and will be available as either a retrofit for existing vehicles or for new vehicles from Lightning's network of distributors and upfitters.

"The new name, Lightning Systems, and our rollout of new products reflects our company's vision: To be a global leader in efficiency and emissions improvement solutions for fleets of medium and heavy duty commercial vehicles," said Tim Reeser, CEO of Lightning Systems, who made the announcement on Wednesday at the ACT Expo in Long Beach, Calif. "We are rolling out a full portfolio of products to help fleet operations be as efficient as possible, validate those results with precise analytical information, and help realize a fast return on investment."
