INDIANAPOLIS. Crosspoint Kinetics and Morgan Olson have combined on a new electric hybrid walk-in van. The companies made the announcement during the NTEA’s Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

The Kinetics Hybrid system from Crosspoint Kinetics was added to Morgan Olson’s Class 3-7 delivery vans and trucks for the new vehicle option. 

The parallel electric hybrid system bolts on to the driveline and captures kinetic energy while slowing and braking. It transforms energy into electricity that is stored in long-life ultra-capacitors where it can be used as incremental power to launch and accelerate the vehicle. 

Users have reported up to 30% more miles per gallon and a comparable reduction in emissions when the hybrid is used in heavy start/stop duty cycles, the companies said.

“We’re excited about the alliance and the privilege to assist Morgan Olson customers with achieving their operating and efficiency goals using the Kinetics Hybrid,” said Merritt Becker, CEO of Crosspoint Kinetics. “Morgan Olson designs the most trusted, efficient and versatile service and delivery vehicles in North America. Offering Cummins engines and now Crosspoint Kinetics Hybrids demonstrates just how our values and capabilities have been aligned through the years.”

The Kinetics Hybrid is engineered to be easy to install and operate in small transit buses, shuttles, and service/delivery vehicles. 

“Our company will always seek ways to meet our client's changing needs,” said Rich Tremmel, vice president of sales and marketing at Morgan Olson. “Our clients are looking for a simpler solution to lowering their operating costs while reducing environmental impact.  In many cases, the Kinetics Hybrid is that right solution.”
