UQM Technologies, Inc. has begun supplying the PowerPhase HD 220 electric drive systems to Boulder EV to build delivery vans for FedEx Express.
“We just introduced the PowerPhase HD 220 electric drive system last month at EVS26 and have been selected to power the Boulder EV delivery vans as part of the FedEx Express all-electric fleet of vehicles,” said Eric R. Ridenour, UQM Technologies’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “Getting our new product out into commercial fleet customers like Boulder EV and FedEx Express is an excellent way to demonstrate its performance and efficiency advantages and will set the foundation for future sales growth.”
As part of this initiative, Boulder EV will use the PowerPhase HD 220 systems in its composite delivery van designed specifically as an all-electric vehicle.
Delivering a maximum output of 220kW, and 120kW on a continuous basis, the PowerPhase HD 220 offers commercial trucks and buses an efficient path to the adoption of electric propulsion technology in heavy-duty vehicles.
Boulder EV describes itself as a green tech manufacturing company that makes purpose-built, all-electric delivery trucks and Work Utility Vehicles (WUV) or cargo vans.
The PowerPhase HD 220 joins PowerPhase Pro 100 and 135 production-validated, automotive-qualified electric propulsion systems for battery electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles.
UQM PowerPhase electric propulsion systems have been selected to power the CODA all electric passenger car, Proterra’s all-electric composite transit buses, as well as Electric Vehicles International’s all-electric medium-duty truck and walk-in van, including a fleet of 100 UPS delivery vans. UQM also was selected to power the Audi A1 e-tron and Rolls-Royce 102EX Electric Phantom pre-production test fleet vehicles.
