Phoenix Cars LLC, a developer of electric vehicle technologies for the fleet market, delivered an electric Zero Emissions Utility Shuttle flatbed (ZEUS) to US Naval Base Ventura County Port Hueneme, California. Vehicle To Grid (V2G) charging capability will provide mobile power capability available for future needs.

The fully sized electric flatbed truck will be used as a service vehicle to transport supplies and equipment for facilities maintenance around Naval Base Port Hueneme and Point Mugu. The Phoenix ZEUS V2G truck is equipped with the capability to direct power both to and from the electric grid when it is not being driven.
The project was funded by the Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) Energy Systems Technology Evaluation Program (ESTEP) headed up by Dr. Richard Carlin.
The electric flatbed truck is powered by the Phoenix proprietary EV platform, which can deliver 100-mile (161 km) range and can complete a full charge in as little as 3 hours. The Phoenix ZEUS is California Air Resource Board (CARB) approved and eligible for California HVIP cash incentives. The Phoenix ZEUS features an 8-year/300,000 mile battery warranty and the security of 24/7 technical support.
