Quantum, PHEV F-150 pickup truck to Florida Power & Light

Irvine, Calif., May 30, 2012 – Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc., a global leader in natural gas, hydrogen and hybrid and electric vehicle technologies, 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.

FPL is an early adopter of both PHEVs and electric vehicles (EVs) and operates one of the largest green fleets of any investor-owned utility in the country.

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 at more than 100 mpg depending on the drive cycle and charging frequency.
