Last night, XL was recognized by the Northeast Clean Energy Council as Emerging Company of the Year during NECEC’s annual Green Tie Gala Awards. The prestigious event is designed to recognize the biggest achievements across the clean technology space, and XL was honored to receive the award for its rapid growth and significant contributions to clean transportation in the commercial and municipal fleet industry.
The award was our third significant recognition in the past few months. We were named one of Boston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work in June, and were among the finalists for the New England Venture Capital Association’s NEVY award for Clean Tech & Energy Company of the Year in April. We’re also a finalist for the upcoming S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards for Commercial Technology of the Year, and we’ll find out those results in December.
It’s great to be recognized for the hard work our growing team puts in every day to develop hybrid electric and plug-in hybrid electric drive systems for commercial fleet vehicles. We recently reached a milestone of 75 million customer road miles driven, saving customers over a million gallons of fuel while reducing their CO2 emissions and adding thousands of hours of productivity back into their drivers’ schedules. We’ve added significant new product introductions to our portfolio over the past year, including the industry’s first hybrid electric Ford F-250 and plug-in hybrid electric Ford F-150 pickup trucks.
It’s all part of an exciting trajectory for our company that we continue to add to every day. So, after last night’s celebration, we’re back at work finding new ways for our customers to save money and meet their sustainability goals – and that is our biggest reward of all.
