Quantum Delivers First PHEV F-150 to Florida Power & Light

June 01, 2012

Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc. — a natural gas, hydrogen and hybrid/electric vehicle technologies company — announced that it has delivered the first pilot version of its plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) F-150 pickup truck to Florida Power & Light Company (FPL), in association with Dow Kokam, the lithium-ion battery system supplier for the PHEV F-150.

"We are pleased to announce the first delivery of this exciting plug-in hybrid electric F-150 truck," said Brian Olson, CEO of Quantum. "In partnership with Dow Kokam, we have developed a truly innovative, unique and durable solution that provides significant advantages for fleets and utilities looking to substantially reduce their operating costs as well as their carbon footprint."

The PHEV F-150 is powered by Quantum's "F-Drive" parallel plug-in hybrid electric drive system. The "F-Drive" allows the truck to run the first 35 miles on a zero emission electric drive and then switch to an efficient hybrid drive mode, achieving 100-plus mpg depending on the drive cycle and charging frequency. The PHEV F-150 incorporates fully-integrated and safety-tested lithium-ion energy storage systems from Dow Kokam.
