XL’s Plug-In Hybrid Electric Drive System Named To TIME’s List Of 2019 Best Inventions

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 (MPG) by up to 50 percent while reducing emissions by one-third, according to the company.

XL, a provider of vehicle electrification solutions for commercial and municipal fleets, has been featured in TIME magazine’s Best Inventions of 2019. 

The XLP Plug-in Hybrid Electric drive system, which helps fleets meet sustainability goals by improving fuel economy and reducing emissions of commercial pickup trucks, was named as one of TIME’s Best Inventions of the year 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 (MPG) by up to 50 percent while reducing emissions by one-third, according to the company. 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,” said 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.”
