Phoenix Motorcars exhibits new gen 4 electric drive system

The Phoenix engineering team refined the new chassis layout to optimize space for the newly designed battery packs.

Phoenix Motor, a manufacturer of of all-electric medium-duty vehicles, recently exhibited its new Gen 4 medium-duty electric drive system for fleet service.

Phoenix says its engineering team refined the new chassis layout to optimize space for the newly designed battery packs that are fastened towards the front and rear of the frame rails. According to the company, the new Gen 4 design increases ground clearance, making it more favorable for fleets and depot hubs where various road conditions can be an issue.

Phoenix’s Gen 4 vehicles are initially equipped with a 90-kWh battery pack offering up to 150-mile range and can be fully charged in one to two hours with a 100-kW Level III charger. The company notes that these new vehicles are expected to reduce atmospheric emissions by roughly 61 tons per vehicle annually, reduce maintenance costs by 75% and lower fuel costs by 80%, all compared to their equivalent internal combustion engine vehicles. Charging options are also available including V2G (vehicle to grid) and wireless charging.

Phoenix Motorcars also recently unveiled live demonstrations of its new Phoenix Exchange battery swap station. This new battery swap station, according to the company, has the ability to swap a 90-kWh battery system in under one minute, providing “unlimited mile range” for active fleets and last mile delivery service providers.
