A North American specialty vehicle manufacturer for the commercial, retail, and service specialty vehicle markets, announced it will reveal its all-new electric delivery vehicle next month.

The Shyft Group (NASDAQ: SHYF, Forum) declared that this electric vehicle is a purpose-built walk-in delivery van that will reach a new benchmark in delivering optimal driver ergonomics and user experience. Vehicle prototypes are expected to reach customers for route testing in the coming months, with production expected to begin by mid-2023.

The lithium-ion battery packs provide an approximate range of 240 kilometres to 280 kilometres (150 to 175 miles) with the opportunity to enhance range through expanded battery options.

With a high degree of configurability, the all-electric chassis is adaptable to last-mile delivery, work truck, mass transit, recreational vehicle and other emerging EV markets.

Shyft Group CEO Daryl Adams explained that the company was unable to find a viable EV chassis option in the market, so they decided to build their own.

“We developed our proof of concept by leveraging nearly 50 years of experience in custom chassis production and last-mile delivery and will put prototypes in our customers' hands for testing and validation in the 2nd half of 2022. Leveraging the infrastructure that supports our coast-to-coast manufacturing and service footprint, we're poised to produce at scale to support the sharply rising demand for last-mile delivery vehicles as well as our customers' carbon-neutral goals.”

The vehicle rolls out at the NTEA Work Truck Week trade show taking place in Indianapolis from March 8th to 10th. For more info, click here.
