Motor Co., moving to expand its hybrid truck lineup, has signed a deal with Azure Dynamics Corp. to put plug-in hybrid powertrains in F-Series Super Duty trucks.
Azure will retrofit the F-350
and F-550 trucks with its hybrid-electric drive trains. The F-550 will be the first to feature the technology, early in 2013, Azure said.
The electrified trucks will be aimed at fleet and commercial customers.
The F-Series Super Duty accounts for about half of the 100,000 commercial cab and chassis produced and sold annually in the United States.
