XL Fleet Corp., a leader in electrification solutions for commercial and municipal fleets based in Boston with operations in Wixom, is now offering its hybrid electric drive system for Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy duty pickup trucks in conjunction with Stellantis.
The deal represents XL Fleet’s first electrification project to be available for Ram Commercial.
With the addition of its fourth OEM platform system compatible with electrified systems and hybrids, the company now provides electric solutions for the Ford F-series, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, and now Ram trucks, four of the U.S.’s top-selling pickup brands.
“Adding a global leader like Stellantis to our network of OEM partners represents a great milestone for XL Fleet, and provides another world-class platform to our product portfolio for customers,” says Dimitri Kazarinoff, CEO of XL Fleet. “The Ram Commercial line of pickup trucks generates significant demand in the fleet industry, and this platform opens attractive new opportunities for our current customers and prospects to electrify their fleet.
“We continue to execute on our strategy of building the broadest and most diverse network of fleet electrification solutions on the market, while helping customers to immediately move forward on meeting their sustainability goals.”
The XLH drive system is compatible with Ram 2500 and 3500 vehicles with the 6.4-liter V8 engine and a wide range of wheelbases, cab configurations, and drivelines. It features a high-efficiency lithium-ion battery, inverter, and electric traction motor, which helps to propel the vehicle forward and captured energy through regenerative braking during deceleration.
The system requires no external power or charging infrastructure to operate, and all OEM factory warranties remain intact. It comes with a standard 3-year, 75,000 warranty, with extended warranty options available. The systems are currently available on a wide variety of class two to six vehicles from Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, and Isuzu.
XL Fleet will be displaying an XLH hybrid-equipped Ram 2500 in its booth during the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo event August 31 to Sept. 1 in Long Beach, Calif.
