Phoenix Motorcars V2G-capable battery-electric flatbed for the U.S. Navy at Port Hueneme, Calif. NavFac is the Naval Facilities Engineering Command.

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).
