Phoenix Motor Inc. (the “Company” or “Phoenix”) (Nasdaq: PEV), a leader in manufacturing of all-electric, medium-duty vehicles, will be exhibiting its new Gen 4 medium-duty electric drive system for fleet service at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center, next Monday through Thursday, May 1-4 at booth #5364.
The Phoenix engineering team refined the new chassis layout to optimize space for the newly designed battery packs that are fastened towards the front and rear of the frame rails. The new Gen 4 design increases ground clearance, making it more favorable for fleets and depot hubs where various road conditions can be an issue.
Phoenix’s Gen 4 vehicles will initially be equipped with a 90-kWh battery pack offering up to 150-mile range and can be fully charged in one to two hours with a 100-kW Level III charger. These new vehicles are expected to reduce atmospheric emissions by ~61 tons per vehicle annually, reduce maintenance costs by 75% and lower fuel costs by 80%, all compared to their equivalent internal combustion engine vehicles. Charging options are also available including V2G (vehicle to grid) and wireless charging.
Phoenix Motorcars will also be unveiling and performing live demonstrations of its new Phoenix Exchange battery swap station at a special event at its corporate headquarters in Anaheim on Wednesday, May 3rd following the ACT Expo at 5:30 pm. This new battery swap station has the ability to swap a 90-kWh battery system in under one minute, providing “unlimited mile range” for active fleets and last mile delivery service providers. Please contact us at the email addresses below to learn more about the event on May 3rd.
“Phoenix Motorcars is thrilled to be showcasing its new Gen 4 vehicle at the ACT Expo and inviting interested parties that want to see and learn more about its new battery swap station offering to a special event at our headquarters,” commented Dr. Lance Zhou, CEO of Phoenix Motorcars.
The Phoenix management team will be present at the ACT Expo for meetings, Q&A and information sessions.
