“Phoenix Motorcars is proud to introduce the first all-wheel drive electric pickup truck ready for fleet procurement,” stated Bryon Bliss, VP Sales and Marketing for Phoenix Motorcars. “The FedFleet 2010 conference provides an ideal opportunity to debut our enhanced Sports Utility Truck. We will begin deliveries later this year.”
Phoenix Motorcars’ advanced battery-electric, zero-emission Sports Utility Truck can travel at freeway speeds while carrying four passengers and a full payload. Providing solutions geared towards today’s fleet operators, Phoenix Motorcars offers a 70 mile range pack with deliveries later this year. An extended 100 mile range pack option will be available for delivery in 2011. Each solution is equipped with lithium batteries.
Phoenix Motorcars will shortly begin production making initial deliveries in late 2010. Initial vehicles will be included in demonstration programs, such as those previously announced in Hawaii, and fleet operations in various locations, including California.
