14 Passenger, All-Electric Shuttle Bus Will be Used to Provide Clean Transport and Will Save More than 60 Tons of CO2 Each Year
Ontario, CA. (March 4, 2015) – Phoenix Cars LLC., a developer of electric vehicle technologies for the fleet market, today announced the delivery of the first of four (4) Zero Emissions Utility Shuttle (ZEUS) to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) campus in Pasadena, California. The 14 passenger, fully electric bus will be used to transport NASA/JPL employees around the Pasadena campus facilities. Phoenix estimates the bus will help reduce campus greenhouse gas emissions, saving more than 60 tons of CO2 annually versus a conventional diesel powered shuttle.
“We are excited to be part of NASA/JPL’s actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Steven Davis, president, Phoenix Cars LLC. “In addition to minimizing CO2, the ZEUS will provide the campus with sizable savings in fueling and maintenance costs. It is an all-around good solution for fleets.”
The electric shuttle is powered by the Phoenix proprietary EV platform, which can deliver 100 mile 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 industry-leading 8 year/300,000 mile battery warranty and the security of 24/7 technical support.
“We stand behind the promise of our vehicles,” said Davis. “Our goal is to build relationships with our customers that last.”
