GreenPower Motor Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of purpose-built, all-electric, zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles serving the cargo and delivery market, shuttle and transit space and school bus sector, 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 is a unique offering for the medium and heavy-duty delivery market. The refrigerator unit gets its power directly from the high-voltage battery and the design is 20% more efficient and 10% lighter than any comparable low-voltage unit currently sold in the U.S.

More payload, longer range

“More payload and longer range make the EV Star Refrigerated Box Truck a real game-changer for the transportation of goods that require refrigeration,” Tritt continued. “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 purpose-built, all-electric commercial vehicles are eligible for up to $40,000 in tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act. GreenPower vehicles also qualify for California’s HVIP program which has funding of $ 250 million, and the New Jersey ZIP program which will open shortly with funding of $ 90 million.
