GreenPower releases EV-refrigerated medium-duty delivery truck

The company said its EV Star REEFERX is purpose-built and fully customizable with a lighter body to allow for increased payload.

GreenPower Motor Company unveiled the EV Star ReeferX, an all-electric refrigerated medium-duty delivery truck, which is now available for orders. Built on GreenPower’s EV Star Cab & Chassis platform, the company said its EV Star ReeferX is purpose-built and fully customizable with a lighter body to allow for increased payload. Designed to serve mid to last-mile refrigerated delivery and catering applications, the EV Star ReeferX moves goods that need to be temperature controlled, such as fresh and frozen foods, flowers and pharmaceuticals, among other applications. The vehicle body features one interior wall structure to allow for sanitation, consistent insulation throughout and a longer life, according to GreenPower.

“The EV Star ReeferX offers customers a unique, modern and versatile all-electric commercial vehicle that boasts a higher payload capacity,” Brendan Riley, president of GreenPower, said. “Through this offering, we are able to provide fleet owners a reliable way to deliver refrigerated and frozen goods on daily routes. Combining performance and efficiency, the EV Star ReeferX is purpose-built to be an electric refrigerated vehicle, making it a superior product for a wide use of applications requiring multi-temperature zones, without the sticker shock.”

GreenPower said its EV Star ReeferX has the following features:

  • One-piece box design provides multiple benefits including a modern look that’s easy to repair, a design that allows for quick assembly and flat-packed for dealers and a one-piece wall structure that provides consistent insulation and longer life;
  • Multi-temperature zones to accommodate moving a variety of items requiring different storage temperatures;
  • Reduced day-to-day vehicle upkeep through sanitation downtime. With one interior wall unit, GreenPower said customers will save time as minimal seams on the vehicle reduce the time it takes for day-to-day upkeep including seamless sanitation;
  • A design intended for around-the-clock delivery capabilities through a range of up to 150 miles and a payload capacity of up to 5,500 lbs;
  • Optimal battery placement for a lower center of gravity resulting in maximum cargo capacity;
  • Increased payload due to a lighter body for increased payload capacity;
  • Three-inch thick PET (polyethylene terephthalate) foam, made from recyclable material with a closed-cell foam composite that will not absorb water, to mitigate temperature variation;
  • Customizable options for low or high-voltage refrigerator units, depending on specific use cases. Various insulation thicknesses available to meet different applications and environments;
  • Multiple-door options with a rear door standard and a rear roll-up door optional as well as optional side door and other locations; and
  • Improves total cost of ownership (TCO) for fleet owners through ease of maintenance, significantly reducing vehicle downtime.

Through GP Truck Body, customers only need to use a single manufacturing entity for streamlined warranty claims, service and overall customer experience, GreenPower said. According to the company, this “one-stop shop” approach for purchasing, manufacturing and service needs, is a key differentiator in customer decision-making.
