XL Fleet Corp. says its hybrid electric drive system is now available as an upfit solution for the new medium-duty, low-cab-forward Isuzu NPR-HD.
The NPR-HD, which is suited for applications such as last-mile delivery, beverage distribution, utility work and food service, is the second Isuzu vehicle XL Fleet has electrified, after originally launching its hybrid system on the Isuzu Reach diesel walk-through van for a global package delivery customer in 2015.
The NPR-HD’s electrification system is XL Fleet’s newest product release, featuring a high-efficiency lithium-ion battery, electric motor, inverter and control software.
XL Fleet’s hybrid system on the Isuzu NPR-HD is now available for purchase throughout North America. It is currently available on NPR-HD models with a 6.6-liter gas powered engine, on 150” and 176” wheelbases, and with both standard and crew cab configurations.
