XL Hybrids customers hit 4M mile mark with XL3 Hybrid Electric Drive retrofit system

XL Hybrids, Inc. announced that fleet customers of its XL3 Hybrid Electric Drive System retrofit system have logged a cumulative total of four million on-road miles.

Customers are driving their service, delivery and cargo fleets more than 500,000 miles per month, a number that is increasing monthly. XL Hybrids said it would provide more detail during the Southeast Alternative Fuels Conference, 23 October.

Our customers enjoy a quick adoption rate because the XL3 system doesn’t need any special plugs, charging or fueling infrastructure. Fleet managers can retrofit existing fleet vehicles or order new vans with our charge-sustaining hybrid electric powertrains. Fleets immediately benefit from cost savings of 20 percent reduction in fuel consumption.

—Clay Siegert, co-founder and vice president of supply chain for XL Hybrids


The XL3 Hybrid Electric Drive for passenger and cargo vans requires less than a $10,000 investment. The simple, fail-safe system provides fleets with 99.9 percent uptime due to the post-transmission, parallel design, the company said.
