Our DES location in Sacramento has been working on a special project recently. They’re installing these electrification Hybrid-drive systems on some new Ford F350 trucks for the City of Sacramento fleet. While DES Sacramento has installed many of these types of hybrid systems on fleet vans, and we are impressed with this new application designed specifically for fleet pickup trucks.
These hybrid systems are a recently introduced product line from XL Fleet, headquartered in Boston MA. They are designed to install seamlessly on F-Series pick up trucks with minimal impact on vehicle operation and performance. This electrification system can deliver a 25% increase in mpg and reduce CO2 emissions up to 20%. Helping customers meet new emissions reduction targets, saving fuel costs and lowering the vehicle’s impact on the environment.
