XL Fleet will debut two new hybrid electric Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck options at NTEA’s The Work Truck Show, 3-6 March in Indianapolis. XL Fleet will display an upfitted hybrid electric Silverado 2500 HD in the Chevrolet Commercial Vehicles booth (#1829) and an upfitted hybrid electric Silverado 3500 HD with an installed Knapheide service body in the XL Fleet booth (#3175).
Both vehicles are equipped with the XLH hybrid electric drive system, representing the latest expansion of XL’s market-leading hybrid solutions for commercial and municipal fleets.
The XLH hybrid electric platform for the Silverado features a high-efficiency lithium-ion battery, inverter and electric traction motor, which propels the vehicle forward during acceleration and captures energy through regenerative braking during deceleration.
As with the rest of the XLH hybrid electric upfit applications, the system requires no external power or charging infrastructure to operate, and all OEM factory warranties remain intact. The XLH system will include XL’s standard 3-year, 75,000-mile warranty, with extended warranty options available.
XL Fleet will be taking orders for both vehicles during The Work Truck show and expects to begin delivering the HEV Silverado 2500 HD platform in April, with the 3500 HD model following closely behind.
