The city of Grand Terrace, California, recently took hold of an all-electric, zero-emission Z400 shuttle bus from Phoenix Motor Inc. The electric service truck is built on a Ford E-450 chassis powered by Phoenix Motorcars and will serve the city and its community.

The electric vehicle addition was funded in part by the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District's VW Program aimed at helping mitigate pollution by scrapping older gas and diesel shuttle buses throughout California.

Emission-Free Operations and a Commitment to Environmental Stewardship

The Phoenix Z400 shuttle bus is equipped with a 105-kWh battery pack offering up to 115-mile range and can be fully charged in two to three hours with a 50-kW Level III charger. The Z400 shuttle, as compared to its equivalent fossil fueled alternative, can reduce atmospheric emissions by ~61 tons per vehicle annually, reduce maintenance costs by 75% and fuel costs by 80%, according to Phoenix Motor. 

Designed to serve the needs of the city's senior and disabled residents, the bus will facilitate transportation to essential appointments, routine outings such as grocery shopping, and special events.
