Zeus Electric Chassis, Inc. and EAVX, a business unit of JB Poindexter & Co., will join forces to develop and commercialize all-electric vocational work truck solutions. Joint development efforts will focus on the integration of the JB Poindexter & Co. (JBPCO) commercial truck bodies, utility truck bodies and vehicle cargo management systems with the Zeus Power Platform, an all-electric cab chassis. Zeus says it will leverage JBPCO’s North American operational footprint to help establish a nationwide service and support network for the Zeus products.
The non-exclusive collaboration agreement will initially focus on the Zeus Z-19 (Class 5, 19,500 LB GVWR) and Z-22 (Class 6, 22,300 LB GVWR), and will expand to the Z-26 (Class 6, 26,000 LB GVWR) – all available with a variety of cab options. Initial market penetration will utilize current and next-generation JBPCO body designs and will be available for commercial fleet pilot programs in 2022.
Zeus offers a fully configurable class 4-6 all-electric vocational work truck cab-chassis.
