The Shyft Group takes order for 2,000 Blue Arc delivery van EVs

Blue Arc EV Solutions, a new go-to-market brand of The Shyft Group, made its debut in March with a commercial grade purpose-built EV chassis; a fully reimagined from the ground up all-electric Class 3 delivery walk-in van; and a portable, remote-controlled charging station, the Power Cube. Now, The Shyft Group announced the first pre-order for its all-electric Class 3, 4 and 5 walk-in delivery vans from Randy Marion Automotive Group, a dealer groups in the Carolinas.

Following receipt of government approvals by this winter, Shyft Group says it expects to finalize a multi-year purchase order with Randy Marion for the pre-ordered walk-in vans, begin production in the Midwest and start delivery to Randy Marion in mid-2023. Fleet customers will be able to pre-order online or at the dealerships starting in September.

The full Blue Arc EV portfolio is available in Class 3-5 walk-in van configurations with body length options from 12 to 22 ft. Designed for high-frequency, last-mile delivery fleets, these vehicles are powered by lithium-ion battery packs that can deliver a 150-mile range at 50% payload in parcel mode with optional extended range packs available. In addition, multiple chassis wheelbase options at 178-, 190-, 208-, and 230-in. will support different applications.
