ZeroTruck builds electric medium-duty trucks under California Energy Commission Grant

ZeroTruck has announced that it is finalizing assembly of several fully electric medium-duty trucks built under a California Energy Commission Grant.

ZeroTruck’s proprietary Electric Drive Integration System (EDIS) converts class 3-5 trucks to run on electric power. Based on the popular medium-duty Isuzu truck, ZeroTruck has a highway speed of 70 mph, and up to 80 miles of range. Its electric motor and lithium polymer energy storage pack are both manufactured in the US. It has both Level 2 and DC on-board chargers, an HD Eaton transmission, and a dash-mounted multi-function display.

The new model benefits from five years of research and testing with prior models. The company has gathered valuable operating metrics from the City of Santa Monica, where the first ZeroTruck was delivered in 2010. “This highly reliable drivetrain is still in operation and has met and exceeded all design specifications put forth by the city water department, including total support by ZeroTruck since delivery,” said CEO Tedd Abramson.

“Corporations and municipalities can now choose a zero-emission solution with multiple body options for long-term reliability and reduced fleet maintenance, and experience a 3-5 year ROI. It saves much more than fuel,” said Abramson.
