The vehicle was delivered with VSE’s prototype RFD6 Re-Power Kit which may increase the current vehicle’s fuel efficiency by as much as 75% with a proportionate reduction in the vehicle’s carbon footprint. The immediate environmental benefits and fuel savings arising from VSE’s prototype powertrain may greatly enhance the U.S. Postal Service’s ability to meet its fuel savings targets while supporting the U.S. Postal Service Lean Green Team’s sustainability vision through reductions in greenhouse gas. This solution is alternative fuels capable.

VSE CEO Mo Gauthier commented,“Our competitively awarded solution has been developed at VSE with the goal of reducing the U.S. Postal Service fuel costs, maintenance costs, and carbon footprint for vehicles requiring powertrain replacement. If successful, replacing the LLV powertrain will enable the U.S. Postal Service to extend the service life of these vehicles. This service life extension approach provides the U.S. Postal Service with the option to defer expensive vehicle replacement until technology offers a better solution.”

The RFD6 Re-Power Kit was engineered by VSE to take advantage of the existing maintenance infrastructure and personnel technical levels resident in the U.S. Postal Service Vehicle Maintenance Facilities (VMFs). The engine and transmission are designed as a direct “bolt-in” solution incorporating many of the existing peripheral parts presently being used in the current LLV fleet, requiring no vehicle frame or body modifications to install. As a result, the solution will require minimal training and no new replacement tools to work on the repowered LLV.
