VMAC launches new interactive vehicle application list

 
 VMAC announced the launch of a new interactive vehicle application list for dealers and customers on VMACAIR.com.


This latest list features several improvements over the previous application list, including the integration of a searchable application database. Users can now search and filter by VMAC system, vehicle model year, chassis, engine, and manufacturer to find the available vehicle integrated air compressors, multi-power systems, and Throttle Commander controls.



“VMAC is committed to being the responsive leader in mobile compressed air innovation. This spirit of innovation has resulted in the development of new online tools that help create an exceptional user experience from the start,” said Mike Pettigrew, VMAC marketing manager. “The search and filter functions on the vehicle application list enhance the online experience for our dealers and customers, allowing them to promptly find the compatible VMAC systems for their vehicle.”

In addition to the search and filter functions on the new VMAC application database, the application list also includes drop-down fields and the ability to sort results by model year, make, engine, system type, chassis, VMAC part number, max CFM and max psi. Further features include easy-to-access links to applicable system manuals and tech bulletins. VMAC dealers will find that once logged into the VMAC website, the application list will also show estimated install times for each system.

The VMAC application list has been designed to be responsive, which means it can automatically resize itself for proper viewing on mobile devices, including phones and tablets. Those who prefer to review the list on paper will be pleased to know it has been formatted to be printable with the push of a button.

“With this new interactive vehicle application list, our customers and dealers will be able to access the most accurate and current information within a matter of seconds,” Pettigrew explained. “This new tool is just the start of VMAC’s commitment to innovation online, which will continue to ensure our dealers and customers have the best online experience in the industry.”

Lightning Systems’ line of battery-electric Ford Transit LightningElectric vans will now include a 150-mile range model, designed for three-shift operations and long-distance routes, according to the company.

The 150-mile model joins the company's existing 50-mile and 100-mile range models of the  Ford Transit LightningElectric, Lightning Systems said.

The Ford Transit 350HD equipped with the zero-emissions LightningElectric drivetrain achieves 61 MPGe in the city and 66 MPGe on the highway, according to Lightning Systems. The testing is part of the newly released 2018 CARB efficiency and range validation test procedures for medium-duty vehicles.

LightningElectric is available for the Ford Transit as part of Ford’s eQVM program. The product, which went on sale earlier this year, is available for heavy-duty Ford Transits with a 10,360-pound gross vehicle weight rating, according to the company. Ford’s vehicle warranty covers the base chassis for vehicles with the Lightning drivetrain. Ford QVM dealers and upfitters perform installations and service.

The batteries of the all-electric Lightning vans can be fast-charged in 30 minutes for the 50-mile version and 90 minutes for the 150-mile version, the company said. Depending on battery option and drive cycle, LightningElectric has a payload capacity of up to 4,000 pounds.
