Fuel Economy - 76% More Efficient
Yard tractors applications at warehouses and marine terminals are known to have very high idle times while waiting for cargo containers. XRE20 features idle stop, where vehicle propulsion does not consume any energy during idling resulting in up to 76% energy savings and 33% saving in maintenance costs due to less wear and tear on components such as transmission.
XRE20 also features dual shift modes, where transmission shift is optimized based on vehicle load resulting in optimized energy consumption when vehicle is operating without loads.
