Phoenix Cars delivers V2G-enabled electric truck to US Navy

Phoenix cars

Phoenix Cars, a developer of EV technologies for the fleet market, has delivered a full-size electric flatbed truck to the US Navy. The Zero Emissions Utility Shuttle (ZEUS) will be used for facilities maintenance at the Port Hueneme, California naval base.

The ZEUS is powered by Phoenix’s proprietary EV platform, which offers a range of up to 100 miles and can be charged in as little as 3 hours.

Like the 12-passenger bus that Phoenix recently deployed at Los Angeles Air Force Base, the ZEUS is equipped with vehicle-to-grid (V2G) capability, allowing it to direct power to and from the electric grid when not being driven. The US military is testing V2G technology at several locations as a means to enhance the power grid’s reliability and security.
