Lithium Ion Packs Penetrate a New Market Segment
EnerDel said today that its Moxie+ lithium ion battery packs have penetrated a new market segment – battery electric delivery trucks.
EnerDel and Mitsubishi Fuso, which brought two of its new Canter FE-Series all-battery trucks to the NTEA Work Truck Show last week (F&F, March 7), shared a display at the Indianapolis event.
“Local delivery trucks present a key opportunity for EV technology as they typically operate on short distances, idle frequently and operate in densely populated city centers,” EnerDel CEO Michael Canada says in today’s release.
“EnerDel has been very active supporting truck and bus customers with our advanced lithium ion technologies to achieve their zero emission targets as well as improve operational performance for both hybrid and all electric systems” he said.
“We predict this market to be a significant growth segment and as such, we look to position ourselves as the zero emissions solution provider of choice.”
‘Fully Meets the Demands’
“Several preproduction vehicles have already passed one year-long rigorous pilot program in real-world environments,” said EnerDel transportation VP Tomasz Poznar.
“The results of the trials prove that our efficient and reliable lithium technology fully meets the demands of both world class OEMs and their end-customers.”
Mitsubishi Fuso reported at NTEA that eight of the battery trucks were tested by potential customers under customer conditions in Portugal. The vehicles are now being tested in Germany.
