All-Electric ‘Zeus’ Flatbed Features Vehicle-to-Grid Capability

Phoenix Motorcars reports delivery of a V2G-capable “Zeus” battery truck to the U.S. Navy at Port Hueneme, Calif. The full-sized flatbed truck will be used as a service vehicle to transport supplies and equipment for facilities maintenance at Port Hueneme and nearby Point Mugu, Phoenix says.

Zeus stands for zero emissions utility shuttle.

The vehicle is equipped for V2G, vehicle-to-grid charging, meaning it can direct power both to and from the electric grid. Thus the truck “will serve as a low-cost mobile power source, and an outlet to increase energy security.”

ONR Funding

The project was funded by ESTEP, the Energy Systems Technology Evaluation Program in the Office of Naval Research.

The vehicle features single-charge range of about 100 miles, Phoenix says.

Phoenix recently delivered to the first of four Zeus trucks to JPL, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, also in Southern California (F&F, April 3).
