TEMPE, Ariz. - July 22, 2021 - ( Newswire.com )

Zero Electric Vehicles, Inc. (ZEV), a rapid innovator of electrification solutions, today announced their first Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500 electric vehicle conversion was certified by the State of Arizona as a qualified zero-emissions vehicle. ZEV is moving to production with their Class 2/3 fleet vehicle conversions to a full battery electric powertrain with a range of 130-150 miles, and Level 2 and optional Level 3 onboard fast charger.

ZEV’s proprietary powertrain configuration enables a new path to electrification via rapid conversion of diesel and gas cargo and passenger vehicles to 100% electric with no change to vehicle weight distribution or payload capacity. This Conversion Kit is currently available for the Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500/3500 Cargo and Passenger Vans and is now being extended to the Ford Transit and other vehicle types.


“ZEV’s Commercial Conversion kit rapidly converts fleet vehicles to a full electric powertrain in less than one day to minimize fleet vehicle downtime and eliminates over 18,000 lbs of CO2 emissions from a diesel conversion per year,” said Darren Elliott, ZEV SVP of Operations.

Combined with this incredible milestone, ZEV was selected as a Qualified Service Provider of Fleet Electrification Assessment services by the Salt River Project (SRP), one of the largest utility companies in the U.S. “The SRP Electrification Qualified Service Provider (eQSP) program is designed to allow trained vendors, like Zero Electric Vehicles (ZEV), to study electrification opportunities and develop a roadmap to convert customer’s fleet to electric. Switching to electric equipment can benefit municipalities, manufacturers, transportation and warehouse operations, grocery and foodservice providers, retailers and other businesses,” said Billy Vaughan of ICF and Program Administrator for the SRP Business EV Charging Program.

ZEV understands the challenges faced by organizations in determining the way forward to an electric future. Finding the right balance between economic investments in electrification and meeting sustainability goals is a complex process requiring insight across all aspects of electrification (infrastructure, chargers, vehicles, training, maintenance/support, data services, and incentives/credits). Through the SRP-sponsored eQSP program, fleet operators obtain an overall assessment of their timeline, vehicle types, quantities, charge stations, and required infrastructure to make the transition.

“ZEV’s commitment to a Zero-Emission future is evident by our rapid development and pre-production delivery of the Class 2/3 fleet vehicle electrification solution; we are actively engaged with fleet customers to assess fleet operations through our SRP partnership and accelerate their journey to a zero-emission operation,” said Jim Maury, ZEV President.
