Phoenix Motorcars Inc.

ANAHEIM, CA / ACCESSWIRE / December 7, 2023 / Phoenix Motor Inc. (NASDAQ:PEV) ("Company" or "Phoenix"), a leading electrification solutions provider for medium-duty vehicles, today announced plans to demonstrate its Phoenix Exchange Battery Swap Technology for commercial vehicles in January. The demonstrations will be held at the company's Anaheim manufacturing facility, and in South Carolina for customers on the East Coast.

The ability to swap battery packs, rather than having to be plugged in to a charger for long periods of time, generates considerable efficiency improvements for electric vehicle fleets and positively impacts the analysis for fleets considering switching to electric vehicles. The Phoenix Exchange battery swap technology can remove and replace large battery packs in under one minute, providing "unlimited mile range" for active fleets and last mile delivery service providers. The battery swap solution from Phoenix will also be paired with innovative battery lease solutions, allowing customers to reduce the upfront capital cost to switch to zero emission technology.

"Phoenix Motorcars is proud to be leading the introduction of new products and solutions for commercial electric vehicles," said Denton Peng, CEO of Phoenix. "Battery swap technology has been successfully introduced in other markets like Europe and Asia, and we believe there are use-cases in the North American market that can accelerate the deployment of electric vehicles by unlocking the potential of being able to swap battery packs, rather than have hours of downtime with Level II or Level III chargers."

Phoenix Motorcars plans to introduce battery swap technology for its medium-duty EVs comprising shuttle buses, trucks and school buses. The technology will also be integrated into products that will include heavy-duty vehicles. Contact us at [email protected] to learn more and to register for the battery swap demo events.
