GreenPower delivers its first EV Star refrigerated box trucks

The EV Star platform is a zero-emission cab and chassis with a battery pack of 118 kWh and a range of up to 150 miles.

GreenPower Motor Company Inc. says it has delivered its first refrigerated box trucks to the University of California San Diego. The EV Star Refrigerated Box Truck is a unique offering for the medium- and heavy-duty delivery market, GreenPower says, as the refrigerator unit gets its power directly from the high-voltage battery and the design is 20% more efficient and 10% lighter than any comparable low-voltage unit currently sold in the U.S., according to the company.

The vehicle has a payload of up to 5,000 pounds and consists of an energy-efficient cooling system, a 16-foot insulated and lined box, and a liftgate, the company says. The EV Star platform is a purpose-built, zero-emission cab and chassis with a battery pack of 118 kWh, a range of up to 150 miles and will charge up to 19.2 kW on a standard Level 2 J1772 protocol or 60kW using a DC fast charge.

“We estimate the refrigerated trucking total addressable market in North America will be more than $5.9 billion by 2028. As operators are electrifying their fleets, GreenPower will see significant growth in the marketplace with this innovative product,” said GreenPower vice president of medium-duty and commercial vehicle sales Claus Tritt.

GreenPower’s all-electric commercial vehicles are eligible for up to $40,000 in tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act. GreenPower vehicles also qualify for California’s HVIP program which has funding of $250 million, and the New Jersey ZIP program which will open shortly with funding of $90 million.
