Since 2009, XL has led the way in developing innovative hybrid electric drive systems that make sense for fleets – delivering significant mileage improvements and emissions reductions while sacrificing nothing in vehicle performance or fleet operations.

Over the past decade, commercial and municipal fleets across North America have responded enthusiastically to our solutions.  Fleet managers love the fuel savings and sustainability benefits.  Drivers love the versatility and performance.  And service managers love the untouched OEM warranties and 99% uptime of our systems.

It all adds up to the most customers, the most miles driven and the biggest overall environmental impact of any fleet electrification company.  Best of all, we’re just getting started.
