An electrified version of Ford’s F-250 earns California Air Resources Board approval.
XL, known for providing electrification solutions for commercial and municipal fleets in North America, has received approval from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to sell hybrid electric Ford F-250 pickup trucks in California.
The company says that its hybrid-equipped F-250 improves fuel economy by an average of 25%, while reducing CO2 emissions by 20%.
“The XLH system is helping us to be in line with the California greenhouse gas reduction standards for the vehicles we use in the County,” said Mike Quan, C.P.M. for the County of Los Angeles Internal Services Department – Fleet Services. “And the XL Link telematics program will allow us to measure and analyze speed, idling, vehicle drive cycle, CO2 emissions reductions and MPG.”
