The Shyft Group announced announced its Blue Arc Power Cube received an honorable mention on Fast Company’s second annual Next Big Things in Tech list, which honors technology breakthroughs that promise to shape the future of industries. The Blue Arc product ecosystem also includes a widely adaptable, commercial-grade EV chassis and the Blue Arc delivery van, a 100% battery-powered Class 3 electric commercial delivery vehicle designed for high-frequency, last-mile delivery fleets.
Designed to support the charging needs of commercial delivery van fleets and turbocharge nationwide goals for electrification and sustainability, the Power Cube – a mobile, commercial-grade, remote-controlled EV charging station – offers clean, responsible energy when and where it’s needed, according to The Shyft Group.
It is capable of carrying up to 3MW of onboard power to support Level 2 and Fast-DC charging, and its built-in wind turbines and sun-tracking solar panels provide supplemental power for systems like the drivetrain. Beyond delivery vans, the Power Cube has a wide range of use cases, including disaster relief, emergency roadside assistance, concerts and other outdoor events, national parks and RV campsites, military and beyond.
“At The Shyft Group, we make it our priority to provide the tools and technologies to efficiently deliver people, packages and services where they are needed most, with a constant focus on sustainable innovation,” said Daryl Adams, president and CEO of The Shyft Group. “When we began developing the Blue Arc ecosystem last year with a commercial-grade EV chassis and Class 3 delivery van, our customers – particularly those who lease their facilities and can’t make permanent upgrades to infrastructure – shared their urgent need for flexible charging solutions to complement the vehicles, and we’re grateful for the strong response so far to our suite of products.”
