General Motors offered a Two-Mode Hybrid system for its Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks from 2009 through 2014, and the same system in its Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Tahoe, and GMC Yukon full-size SUVs.

Sales totaled roughly 30,000 units among all vehicles over several years, and GM no longer offers a hybrid system on any vehicle above a mid-size passenger sedan.
XL Hybrids will be retrofitting hybrid systems onto F-150s for a 25% MPG improvement and F-250s for a 50% increase. They estimate production in 2020.

Workhorse plans on selling $52,500 plug-in hybrid trucks that will get 28/32 later this year.
