GreenPower launches new electric refrigerated box truck – Truck News

GreenPower Motor Company today revealed a new electric medium-duty truck with temperature-controlled box and a payload capacity of up to 5,500 lb.

The EV Star ReeferX was introduced at the Home Delivery World trade show and is available for order now. It has a range of up to 150 miles (240 km) and the body features multi-temperature zones. It can be fitted with low- or high-voltage refrigeration units, and its one-piece box design provides easy repairs, quick assembly and consistent insulation for a longer life, the company claims.

The box comes with three-inch thick polyethylene terephthalate foam for insulation, which is made from recycled materials and mitigates temperature variations.

The truck is built on GreenPower’s EV Star Cab and Chassis platform and the truck is aimed at mid- to final-mile refrigerated delivery and catering fleets. It can haul fresh and frozen foods, flowers and pharmaceuticals and other temperature-sensitive goods.

“The EV Star ReeferX offers customers a unique, modern and versatile all-electric commercial vehicle that boasts a higher payload capacity,” said Brendan Riley, president of GreenPower.

“Through this offering, we are able to provide fleet owners a reliable way to deliver refrigerated and frozen goods on daily routes. Combining exceptional performance and efficiency, the EV Star ReeferX is purpose-built to be an electric refrigerated vehicle, making it a superior product for a wide use of applications requiring multi-temperature zones, without the sticker shock.”

The body can be spec’d with an optional rear roll-up door as well as a side door. GP Truck Body is the body supplier, but GreenPower says it has streamlined warranty claims and service offerings, giving customers a “one-stop shop” for their purchasing, manufacturing and service needs.
