Quantum F-150 PHEV Hybrid Truck

Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. delivered one of its first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle to Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) for fleet uses.  This is a pilot version of the PHEV and is based on a Ford F-150.

Different acronyms are used to describe plug hybrid vehicles.  For example, a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHV), or plug-in hybrid.  Just remember how a hybrid vehicle utilizes rechargeable batteries, or another energy storage device, that can be restored to full charge by connecting a plug to an external electric power source (usually a normal electric wall socket).

Remember to use your Moditech Crash Recovery System (CRS) to check for advanced steels and airbag inflator locations.  As of right now, no Emergency Response Guide is available for the Quantum f-150 PHEV.
