Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI) and First Priority GreenFleet have announced a collaboration to offer a suite of drivetrain solutions to fleet operators. EDI will provide its EDI PowerDrive line of EV and PHEV drivetrains, EDI PowerSuite Vehicle Control Software and Telematics, and EDI Power2E 2 Way Charging and Exportable Power. FP GreenFleet will provide volume manufacturing and service capabilities for EDI customers.

The companies will produce electrified vehicles from Class 2 through Class 8 for fleets serving the logistics, emergency response and utilities industries.

FP GreenFleet will build vehicles for EDI customers requiring volume builds, and the two companies will work together on sales and marketing. The collaboration combines FP GreenFleet’s East and West Coast build locations.

Initial programs are scheduled to launch in September.

“As we enter a new era of vehicle technology development, and quickly growing emissions reduction mandates, companies must co-innovate to help solve the technology and manufacturing and service gap in the medium- and heavy-duty [vehicle] industry,” said EDI CEO Joerg Ferchau.

“The integration of EDI’s advanced EV and PHEV technology into the First Priority GreenFleet alternative fuel vehicles platform is extremely valuable, as it accelerates bringing solutions to market and maximizes support efficiencies for our customers,” said First Priority GreenFleet CEO Alex Cherepakhov. “We’ll work closely with EDI to bring cost-effective solutions to market that demonstrate immediate impact to the industry, and close the technology gap for fleet operators.”
