The Shyft Group highlights Blue Arc EV delivery vans

Blue Arc delivery vehicles have achieved a city driving range of 225 miles under CARB test conditions.

The Shyft Group is exhibiting its Blue Arc EV delivery vehicles at ACT Expo. The company says the all-electric Class 3 delivery vehicle is designed for high-frequency, last-mile fleets. Blue Arc delivery vehicles have achieved a city driving range of 225 miles under CARB test conditions, notes the company. In addition, the company says it puts its vehicles through additional tests beyond industry requirements to ensure they meet the needs of last-mile delivery.

The Shyft Group notes that the first order of 2,000 Blue Arc EVs go into production in the second half of this year. The Blue Arc EV ecosystem includes Class 3, 4, and 5 all-electric walk-in vans as well as the newest introduction, a Class 5 all-electric crew cab.

Shyft says it recently announced a $16-million investment in its facilities in Charlotte, Mich. to enable the production of electric vehicles. The Charlotte facility will have the capacity to build 3,000 Blue Arc EVs per year
