Published in Automotive News - By Sebastian Blanco
In 2009, XL Hybrids opened for business with a plan to add small batteries and electric motors to some larger work vehicles used by fleets. Think Ford F-150, Ford Transit, Chevrolet Express or GMC Savana. Today, the company won't say how many vehicles it has electrified, only that more than 50 million miles have been put on XL's upfitted vehicles.
