Phenix to Upfit and Sell Zeus All-Electric Medium-Duty Vocational Trucks in Southern California
Long Beach, CA (May 8, 2022) – As a class 4-6 all-electric cab-chassis manufacturer, Zeus Electric Chassis, Inc (Zeus) depends on vocational body OEMs and upfitters to bring their products to market. The Zeus business model enables truck bodies and equipment to be mounted on the chassis with plug-and-play auxiliary system integration, effectively streamlining the upfit process. This approach also leverages trusted relationships within the industry to address fleet needs in markets such as utility, municipal, construction, and landscape.
Phenix Truck Bodies & Van Equipment has been providing commercial truck and van solutions to fleets since 1978. As a trusted supplier to the largest Southern California utility, municipal and commercial fleets, Phenix has delivered tens of thousands of vehicles to their customers in its 45-year history and they provide solutions that are designed and built to meet each fleet’s specific requirements.
Zeus and Phenix will combine efforts to bring game changing all-electric solutions to market. Initially promoting low volume deployment programs to large fleets with aggressive fleet electrification goals, they will work with fleet leaders on a complete EV adoption program in preparation for larger scale implementation and deployment.
As a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (minority-owned DBE) certified with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), Phenix can help companies achieve both their EV and DBE procurement goals.
“With California Air Resources Board (CARB) Executive Order in hand on our Z-19 and Z-22 products, we are ready to expand our presence in the state. Phenix understands the goals and needs to help their customers be more productive and efficient and their technical capabilities, reputation, and professionalism make them a perfect fit for the Zeus family” says Jim Steffes, Zeus Vice-President of Sales and Dealer Development.
