‘Zeus’ Battery-Electric Shuttles for WallyPark at LAX:
‘First All-Electric Airport Parking Depot in the Nation’
Phoenix Motorcars is talking up its deployment of 16 of its Zeus/zero emissions utility shuttle buses with the L&R Group’s WallyPark Premier. The 14-passenger 100% battery-electric buses are being used to service off-airport parking at LAX, the Los Angeles International Airport.
“This deployment makes WallyPark Premier the first all-electric airport parking depot in the nation,” Phoenix says.
The firm pledges to “continue electrifying and deploying buses to other L&R parking depots such as Joe’s Parking, Avistar and Airport Center.”
‘We Are Committed to this Technology’
“We are committed to this technology,” L&R’s operations chief Ed Pomponio says in a Phoenix release.
Each of the buses is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 60 tons of carbon dioxide per year, Phoenix says, as compared to a conventional diesel shuttle.
All of the buses have fast-charging capability, allowing full charging to take place in less than three hours.
‘L&R’s Vision Will Change the Market Landscape’
“We look to provide our clients sizeable savings in fueling and maintenance costs,” Phoenix sales director of Tarek Helou says in the WallyPark LAX release.
“L&R’s vision,” he said, “will change the market landscape and make a positive impact in the Airport, Hotel and Parking industry.”
