The Shyft Group, Rush Enterprises pen EV agreement

The Shyft Group’s Blue Arc EV will start customer deliveries in 2024 in Charlotte, Michigan.

The Shyft Group has finalized an agreement with Rush Enterprises, which operates the largest network of commercial vehicle dealerships in North America, to sell and service the company’s Blue Arc Class 3, 4 and 5 all-electric delivery vehicles.

Blue Arc, the company notes, provides benchmark performance levels for range in commercial EVs with CARB certification at 225 miles for Class 3 EVs under CARB test conditions, which gives customers the knowledge they can comfortably perform and, in many cases, exceed a daily last-mile delivery route and cargo capacity requirements.

Shyft’s Blue Arc EV will start customer deliveries in 2024 in Charlotte, Michigan. Vehicle sales and service support will be offered through authorized dealerships strategically located across Rush Truck Centers’ nationwide network, the company said.
