Zenith Motors LLC, a manufacturer of electric vans, recently announced that it is the first auotmaker to receive a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Certificate of Conformity for an electric commercial van.

As part of the Clean Air Act of 1990, the EPA Certificate of Conformity is a required certification for vehicles to operate on U.S. roads and highways and certifies that vehicles conform to all EPA regulations and emission standards.

"We are extremely pleased to be the first commercial electric van to have received EPA Certificate of Conformity. This certificate allows our customers to reduce their vehicle cost through Federal tax credits," said William Yung, CEO of Zenith Motors LLC, in a recent statement.

According to the manufacturer, Zenith Electric Shuttle and Cargo Vans are 100% electric, can travel up to 60 miles per hour with a range from 90-120 miles per charge, and can fully charge in 6.5 hours.
