evLABs and The Box Truck Network have signed a five-year exclusive agreement to provide new and repowered electric trucks. evLABs will include the Class 6 electric truck, the “CurrentT,” and an electric delivery van, the “Thunderbolt,” on The Box Truck Network.
evLABs will also be participating in The Box Truck Network trade show displaying the electric “CurrentT” truck.
evLABs is a Utah-based electric truck and bus builder specializing in trucks between 19,500-lb. GVW through 33,000-lb. GVW. The electric truck offerings for U.S. fleets include:
- Delivery vans.
- School/transit buses.
- Electric repowers.
“We are very excited to have this relationship with The Box Truck Network,” stated James Lawrence, president, and CEO of evLABs. The ‘e’ in evLABs stands not just for electric but also for ergonomic and economic. “This relationship gives us the opportunity to serve the 4,000 members of The Box Truck Network with our product offerings.”
According to a release, with the way the market is headed as far as EV technology, the companies that will greatly benefit from this new alternative will be those who do both local and regional work.
“We get contacted by a large number of carriers that do local work, who would benefit greatly from the ‘CurrentT’ and repowers. Not just carriers, but shippers who utilize box trucks for their local deliveries,” said Philip Nenadov, founder and CEO of The Box Truck Network. “We were looking to represent an EV company to our members and future and prospective members.”
“Having an electric vehicle and a virtual reality experience at the tradeshow will rock the industry!” Nenadov said.
Work Truck chatted with evLABs back in 2019 about their focus on truck electrification. During the discussion, we covered the benefits of repowering a fleet truck vs. purchasing a new EV, and how the process works.
For fleets looking to adapt more to the possibility of an electric future, evLABs is working to help the commercial, medium-duty segment.
