XL, a company that specializes in vehicle electrification technologies for commercial and municipal fleets, says its XLP plug-in hybrid electric drive system has been featured in TIME magazine’s Best Inventions of 2019 in the transportation category.
The XLP technology began shipping in volume to commercial, utility and municipal fleets throughout North America in 2019, installing onto standard Ford F-150 and F-250 pickup trucks to improve miles driven per gallon by up to 50% while reducing emissions by one-third. It is the newest electrification platform from XL, which has been offering hybrid electric drive systems for a wide range of commercial Ford, GM and Isuzu vehicles for the past decade. XL’s customers have driven over 100 million cumulative miles on the company’s hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric drive systems over that time.
“We’re excited to have our revolutionary XLP system recognized as one of TIME’s most groundbreaking and influential inventions of 2019,” says XL CEO Dimitri Kazarinoff. “It’s a great win for our entire product development team and continues to confirm the value of plug-in hybrid solutions for fleet customers everywhere.”
