A hybrid version of the Ford F-250 pick-up truck will make its debut at the NTEA Work Truck Show this March. XL, formerly XL Hybrids, will show the plug-in F-250 that employs its electrification platform. The company had previously released a plug-in hybrid F-150 and a standard hybrid F-250. The company caters to municipal and utility fleets, according to a report from Green Car Congress, and the F-250 plug-in model employs regenerative braking.
