Phoenix Motorcars has begun series production of its first third-generation drivetrain products. The first three units were recently completed out of its Ontario facility.
The third generation boasts the largest battery pack and longest range currently available in Class 4 vehicles, the company says, lending itself to shuttle buses, service trucks, utility trucks, flatbed trucks, cargo trucks and delivery options. The new liquid-cooled battery pack is modular, coming in 63, 94, 125 and 156kWh configurations.
Phoenix launched its first electric drivetrain in 2009 and sold its first commercial EV in 2014.
