XL, a Boston company that is a big player in the hybridization of fleet vehicles, has announced it's added the F-150 to the vehicles it upgrades for commercial customers. (XL was already converting Ford Super Duty trucks, Ford Transit and E-Series Cutaway vans, Chevy and GMC vans, shuttle buses, box trucks, that sort of thing, and recently announced a big electrification of Verizon's fleet.)

XL takes an F-150's existing 2.7-liter Ecoboost or 3.3-liter base engine and augments it. Actually, XL doesn't do it, your fleet's own mechanics do it, with a ship-through kit that XL says takes less than a day to install. It works with either two-wheel- or four-wheel-drive trucks and any cab or bed configuration. The upgrade includes a 15-kWh battery, a traction motor spliced into the driveline, regenerative braking and the technology to control it all. The system supports Level 1 and Level 2 charging.
