LOS ANGELES — GreenPower Motor Company Inc., announced the delivery of its first refrigerated box trucks to the University of California San Diego.
“GreenPower has expanded its offering of purpose-built, all-electric commercial vehicles with the addition of the best-in-class, EV Star Refrigerated Box Truck,” said GreenPower Vice-President of Medium Duty & Commercial Vehicle Sales Claus Tritt.
The EV Star Refrigerated Box Truck gets its power directly from the high-voltage battery and the design is 20 per cent more efficient.
“More payload and longer range makes the EV Star Refrigerated Box Truck a real game-changer for the transportation of goods that require refrigeration,” Tritt said. “Utilizing GreenPower’s EV Star Cab and Chassis and working with our partner Lion Truck Body, we can configure the vehicle to meet the customer’s requirements while integrating all the systems and electrical requirements into our vehicle.”
The vehicle has a payload of up to 5,000 pounds and consists of an energy efficient cooling system, a 16-foot insulated and lined box and a liftgate. The EV Star platform is a purpose-built, zero-emission cab and chassis with a battery pack of 118 kWh, a range of up to 150 miles and will charge up to 19.2 kW on a standard Level 2 J1772 protocol or 60kW using a DC fast charge.
“We estimate the refrigerated trucking total addressable market in North America will be more than $5.9 billion by 2028. As operators are electrifying their fleets, GreenPower will see significant growth in the marketplace with this innovative product,” Tritt concluded.
GreenPower’s all-electric commercial vehicles are eligible for up to $40,000 in tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act.
