XL Hybrids, is unveiling the industry’s first-ever hybrid-electric F-250 pickup at NTEA’s Work Truck Show, March 6-9, 2018 in Indianapolis.

Additionally, the fleet electrification company, will be displaying its plug-in hybrid-electric F-150.

XL Hybrids begins production on the hybrid electric system for model year 2018 Ford Super Duty F-250 pickups in March. This will be the first time that Ford F-250 trucks can be ordered by fleet customers with hybrid-electric technology.

At the NTEA Work Truck Show, XL is also announcing compatibility with more F-150 models, including SuperCrews. XL now offers fleets XLP PHEV upfits, which provide a 50 percent improvement in miles driven per gallon, on Regular Cab, SuperCab and SuperCrew configurations for the F-150.

“Ford trucks are in high demand by XL’s fleet customers, so we developed our hybrid-electric upfit solutions for both the F-150 and F-250 pickup to support needs for power, payload, as well as better fuel economy,” said Clay Siegert, chief operating officer for XL.

Installation of XLH hybrid and XLP plug-in systems are completed, the company notes, in just hours on pickup trucks as a Ford ship-thru upfit. Fleets will maintain the complete original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) warranty and receive a three-year, 75,000-mile warranty from XL on the hybrid powertrain. XLH and XLP will also include the XL Link™ cloud-based big data analytics system, which collects millions of operational data points, measuring MPG performance, reporting carbon dioxide emissions reductions and other key performance indicators.

Ford Motor Company will be showcasing a third XL truck in its booth at the NTEA Work Truck Show, this one an XLP plug-in hybrid-electric F-150.
