XL Fleet to electrify Ram pickup trucks with hybrid upfit

XL Fleet’s newest product represents the fourth OEM platform on which its electrification systems are compatible.

XL Fleet Corp. is now offering its hybrid electric drive XLH system for Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickup trucks. The XLH system represents the company’s first electrification product to be available for Ram Commercial, Stellantis’ line of commercial pickup trucks.

XL Fleet’s newest product represents the fourth OEM platform on which its electrification systems are compatible, which also includes hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric drive solutions for Ford, General Motors and Isuzu fleet vehicles. With the Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickup models added to its hybrid product line, XL Fleet now electrifies Ford F-series, Chevrolet Silverado, Ram and GMC Sierra trucks.

The XLH hybrid electric drive system is now available for select Ram 2500/3500 models with the 6.4L V8 engine and a range of wheelbases, cab configurations and drivelines. The XLH system features a high-efficiency lithium-ion battery, inverter and electric traction motor, which the company says helps to propel 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 includes XL Fleet’s standard 3-year, 75,000-mile warranty, with extended warranty options available. The systems are also currently available on a wide variety of Class 2-6 vehicles from Ford, Chevrolet, GMC and Isuzu.
