Phoenix Motorcars, the California-based developer of an all-electric sport utility pickup truck (SUT) has placed an order with Enova Systems for the integration of ten of the company’s 90kW Electric Drive Systems in Phoenix SUTs.
Phoenix had worked with Enova on the prototypes, and is continuing to evaluate other drive systems options as well. (Earlier post.)
The award for the ten 90kW systems follows closely behind Enova’s participation with IC Corporation to build 19 hybrid school buses. (Earlier post.) The hybrid school bus uses an 80kW drive system.
Partnering with Phoenix Motorcars helps further establish our penetration into important sectors of the Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Market. We believe these Sport Utility Trucks will have a significant impact on the market and are pleased to be part of Phoenix Motorcar’s supply team.—Mike Staran, Enova Vice President of Marketing
Phoenix also recently placed an order with Altair Nanotechnologies for lithium-ion batteries for the electric trucks. (Earlier post.)
