At their best, incentive programs for vehicle technologies seed an early, innovative market, getting potential users comfortable with new technology. This has been the goal of CARBâ€™s Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project voucher project (HVIP) in California.
HVIP was created to accelerate the adoption of commercial hybrid vehicle technologies in California, and reduce fleet fuel use and emissions. The program has had successes, but also areas for potential improvement.

Questions we at XL Hybrids often hear from fleet customers about the XL3 Hybrid Drive System include:
– â€œHow do I wrap XL Hybrids upfits into my new vehicle purchases?
– â€œHow do I retrofit my vehicles already in service?â€
– â€œCan XL Hybrids systems be installed on leased vehicles?â€
– â€œDoes XL Hybrids offer hybrid systems in Canada?â€
Our goal is to make it simple. Yes, on new vehicle purchases, you can order XL3 systems at the same time as you order your vehicles. We can work directly with your preferred dealer to provide quotes, detailed production information, and the right upfitter ship-thru codes. In terms of upfitters, we have sales and installation partnerships with Ford and General Motors ship-through partners such as Leggett & PlattÂ® CVP, the Knapheide Manufacturing CompanyÂ®., Adrian SteeleÂ®, and , FarmbroÂ® in Canada. These installation partners can upfit new vehicles or retrofit existing ones and are located throughout the US and Canada.
