Intelligent EV systems provider ZEVX has partnered with Breezeline, the nation’s eighth-largest cable operator, to introduce what is being billed as the world’s first fully electric light aerial bucket truck. ZEVX will deliver both drivetrain and accessory electrification, while helping Breezeline move one step closer to its 2050 net zero emissions goals.
The Breezeline bucket truck was built on a 2019 Ford F-450 Chassis with an existing boom system outfitted with the ZEVX Athena Extended Range conversion, delivering 124kWh to power both the drive train as well as the power take-off (PTO) system of the boom system.
"Building on our significant work to transform today’s traditional fleets into highly efficient EVs we are excited to work with Breezeline to introduce the first fully electric bucket truck,” said Sydney Dunn, SVP of Sales & Field Operations at ZEVX. "We’re further gratified that by expanding our offerings to include powered accessories, in addition to core power systems and fleet management software, we can also help companies like Breezeline move quickly toward bold lower emissions targets.”
ZEVX has a series of battery electric powertrain and power system products designed to quickly migrate Class 2-5 commercial fleet assets and auxiliary power tools to zero carbon.
