Kingsley Coach Announces Plans for Hybrid RV
Kingsley Coach announced today that it is considering alternatives for a hybrid version of its K-3 model custom coach as part of an environmental and fuel economy push designed to make Kingsley's K-3 the first hybrid RV model on the market.
The potential hybrid under consideration will be either a regular petrol engine married to an electric motor, or would use a hydrogen injection system to help improve gas mileage and reduce emissions. Kingsley
is also pursuing the use of solar panels on their coaches as an alternate source of power for convenience items within the coach.
"We have started discussions with several manufacturing companies about the concept of a hybrid RV and are excited about the possibilities," stated Allan Smethers, CEO. "With the current high cost of fuels, it clearly makes sense for us to explore the possibilities of a hybrid technology. Preliminary research indicates that fuel savings can amount to 35 percent on electric hybrids and 15 percent on hydrogen injection systems," added Smethers.
