XL Fleet announced July 14 that its XL Hybrid electric drive system is now available as an upfit solution for the Isuzu NPR-HD. The electrification system is XL Fleet’s newest product and enables Isuzu customers to electrify one of its most popular medium-duty low-cab-forward vehicles, which is suited for applications such as last-mile delivery, beverage distribution, utility work, and food service.

Featuring a lithium-ion battery, electric motor, inverter, and control software, the XL Hybrid system transforms traditional gas-powered fleet vehicles into hybrid electric units with no operational disruption to the fleet. The NPR-HD is the second Isuzu vehicle XL Fleet has electrified, after originally launching its hybrid system on the Isuzu Reach diesel walk-through van for a global package delivery customer in 2015.

On June 9, XL Fleet displayed its hybrid electric drive system on the Isuzu NPR-HD at its Michigan Fleet Electrification Technology Center ribbon cutting ceremony with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

XL Fleet’s hybrid system on the Isuzu NPR-HD is now available for purchase throughout North America. It is currently available on NPR-HD models with a 6.6L gas powered engine, on 150- and 176-inch wheelbases, and with both standard and crew cab configurations.
