This company is unique because they’re not building vehicles from the ground up. Instead, they offer aftermarket upfits that can be installed on new or existing vehicles. Those upfits then turn vehicles into hybrid electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. What’s even better is that XL Hybrids works in concert with many major OEMs like Ford, General Motors and Isuzu.

XL Hybrids unveiled a hybrid conversion of the Ford F-250 pickup truck at the 2018 Work Truck Show in Indianapolis Tuesday. In addition to the gas-electric F-250 XLH, the company also showed off the Ford F-150 XLP, a plug-in hybrid truck. Adding a hybrid component to the powertrain can improve fuel economy by up to 25 percent while the plug-in hybrid can boost efficiency by up to 50 percent, Clay Siegert, XL’s chief operating officer, told Trucks.com.
