Enova Integrates Ford F-150 and Chevy Express With All-Electric System

April 22, 2010

Enova Systems Inc., a creator of hybrid and electric drive systems, has expanded its all electric Zero Emissions (Ze) drive system offerings to include a Ford F-150 utility truck and Chevrolet Express cargo van.

The Ford F-150 is the highest sales volume pick-up truck in the United States and has been integrated with a 90kW all-electric Ze drive system. The Chevy Express cargo van is one of the top selling domestic fleet vans in its vehicle classification and has been integrated with a 120kW all-electric Ze drive system.

Enova's all-electric Ze drive system offers an ideal zero-emissions vehicle for service and utility fleets with high performance demands such as the Ford F-150 and the Chevy Express. The system is power source agnostic, easily installed in line or as a conversion system, and is versatile across a wide range of truck and van chassis.

The 120kW Ze drive system is currently being deployed to national fleets on the Freightliner/Daimler MT-45 EV step van chassis. It is available for immediate purchase by federal fleets through the General Services Administration.

Enova Systems CEO Mike Staran stated, "This incremental deployment of the Ze all electric drive system is an important step as Enova continues to introduce industry defining products. These drive systems are 'zero development time' electric vehicle solutions, available immediately to government, OEM, and private fleet operators."

The all-electric Ford F-150 will undergo a series of third-party testing at a nationally recognized clean vehicle testing center starting in June. Testing will include a range of dynamometer and on-road testing programs.

Additionally, Enova will display in June its family of vehicles to North American OEMs, government officials and targeted feet operators, complete with capability overviews and "ride-and-drives" at various locations in the Midwest, East and West Coasts.

"It is important for customers and the government to understand our technology is production ready. The ability to drive vehicles with our system is further evidence that Enova is ready to offer immediate support for their electric vehicle initiatives" added Staran.
