Electric Vehicles International (EVI), a company that specializes in Class 4-5 alternative-fuel trucks and walk-in vans, has signed a new long-term agreement with UQM Technologies Inc. for the supply of UQM's PowerPhase HD systems.
The PowerPhase HD electric motors and controllers will power all of EVI's medium-duty all-electric vehicles, which will be paired with battery systems that will offer ranges of up to 90 miles per charge.
‘The UQM HD systems provide a solid electric powertrain for our medium-duty trucks and walk-in vans,’ says Ricky Hanna, CEO of EVI.
UQM will begin shipping the systems to EVI in the third quarter. The companies did not specify how many units are being produced for the partnership.
