500-Cubic-Foot Delivery Van Part of a Full Line of Battery Trucks
Colorado’s Boulder Electric Vehicle is talking up its impending appearance at next week’s NAFA 2013 Institute and Expo. “Our 500 cubic foot delivery van is only one of a full line of electric trucks that Boulder Electric Vehicle began delivering in late 2012,” the company says.
NAFA I&E runs April 23-26 at the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, N.J. The trade show dates are April 24-25.
Boulder EV names the City of Dallas, the City of Galveston, the City of San Antonio, Precision Plumbing, and Morning Fresh Dairy as it customers. There are more to come, including FedEx, according to sales VP Bryon Bliss.
“With a range of 100 miles, at a cost of around $5.00 in electricity, the numbers quickly add up in favor of electric drive,” the company says. The firm promises lower cost of ownership with maintenance expenses reduced by up to 80%.
UQM Drives, Proprietary BMS
Boulder uses PowerPhase 220 drivelines, including traction motors and controllers, from UQM Technologies, Bliss says. Boulder builds its own air-cooled – and heated – battery packs with a proprietary battery management systems using lithium iron phosphate cells manufactured in China, he told F&F.
