The announcement was made at NTEA Work Truck Week, along with the news that North Carolina-based Randy Marion Dealer Group will be the first dealer in the U.S. to offer Shyft’s Class 3 delivery vehicle.

Shyft’s battery-powered chassis features customizable length and wheelbase. The lithium-ion battery packs provide an approximate range of 150 to 175 miles.

The Blue Arc delivery van is a 100% battery-powered Class-3 electric commercial delivery vehicle, designed for high-frequency, last-mile delivery fleets. The cargo area features 635-800 cubic feet of storage. The vehicles range from 14 feet  to 18 feet in length and offer payload capacity of up to 5,000 lbs.

The Power Cube provides a mobile, customizable, commercial grade EV charger that does not need to be connected to the grid. It carries power onboard and can have vehicles charged in one to two hours.
