Balqon Corporation, a developer of electric drive systems, lithium-ion battery systems and medium- to heavy-duty electric vehicles (earlier post), announced the availability of its new Mule M100, a battery-electric on-road truck for use in inner-city deliveries and cargo transportation.
The Mule M100 has a top speed of 70 mph (113 km) and can travel up to 100 miles (161 km) before having to recharge, making it suited for daily, short-haul deliveries. The Mule M100 also demonstrates the expansion of Balqon’s product portfolio into the Class 7 on-road market.
The Mule M100 was developed using Balqon’s proprietary heavy-duty electric vehicle drive system that includes complete power management, propulsion, and power conversion systems.
The Mule M100 features a 24-foot deck and 4 ton capacity to accommodate the pickup and delivery of beverages, packages and shipment of cargo for inner city deliveries. The Mule M100 fully recharges in three hours, allowing customers to increase the vehicle’s range with the opportunity of charging during the day.
