GreenPower unveils all-electric ReeferX

New medium-duty refrigerated truck features a customizable design, multi-temperature zones, lighter body, and up to 5,500 lbs. of payload capacity.

GreenPower Motor Company recently unveiled the EV Star ReeferX, a new all-electric refrigerated medium-duty delivery truck.

The new reefer truck is available to order today, the company reported.

Built on GreenPower’s EV Star cab and chassis platform, the ReeferX is purpose-built and fully customizable with a lighter body to allow for increased payload. Designed to serve mid to last-mile refrigerated delivery and catering applications, the ReeferX moves goods that need to be temperature controlled, such as fresh and frozen foods, and flowers and pharmaceuticals. The vehicle body features a one-interior-wall structure to allow for seamless sanitation, consistent insulation throughout, and longer life.

“The EV Star ReeferX offers customers a unique, modern, and versatile all-electric commercial vehicle that boasts a higher payload capacity,” Brendan Riley, GreenPower president, said in a news release. “Through this offering, we are able to provide fleet owners a reliable way to deliver refrigerated and frozen goods on daily routes. Combining exceptional performance and efficiency, the EV Star ReeferX is purpose-built to be an electric refrigerated vehicle, making it a superior product for a wide-use of applications requiring multi-temperature zones, without the sticker shock.”

The EV Star ReeferX combines a modern look with the “X Factor” advantage:

  • One-piece box design provides multiple benefits, including a modern look that’s easy to repair, a design that allows for quick assembly and is flat-packed for dealers, and a one-piece wall structure that provides consistent insulation and longer life.
  • Multi-temperature zones to accommodate moving a variety of items requiring different storage temperatures.
  • Reduced day-to-day vehicle upkeep through sanitation downtime. With one interior wall unit, customers will save time as minimal seams on the vehicle reduces the time it takes for day-to-day upkeep.
  • Built for around the clock delivery capabilities through a range of up to 150 miles and a payload capacity of up to 5,500 lbs.
  • Optimal battery placement provides for a lower center of gravity, resulting in maximum cargo capacity.
  • Increased payload due to a lighter body allows for increased payload capacity, saving customers time and money, along with an eTRU powered by a high-voltage battery.
  • Mitigates temperature variation with 3-in. thick PET (polyethylene terephthalate) foam, made from recyclable material with a closed cell foam composite that will not absorb water.
  • Customizable options for low- or high-voltage refrigeration units, depending on specific use cases. Various insulation thickness available to meet different applications and environments.
  • Multiple door options with rear door standard and a rear roll up door optional, as well as optional side door and other locations.
  • Improves total cost of ownership (TCO) for fleet owners through ease of maintenance, reducing vehicle downtime.

“Federal and state regulations continue to drive the rapid adoption of all-electric commercial vehicles,” Riley said. “The global refrigerated trucks market size reached $9.8 billion in 2023, and is expected to reach $15.4 billion by 2032. With California’s proposed regulation for all transportation refrigeration units (TRUs) to achieve zero-emissions by the end of 2035, combined with the increasing demand from consumers for online shopping and home grocery delivery, a significant market opportunity exists for this vehicle.

“GreenPower is well-positioned to support the perishable goods category with a robust product offering and a well-established nationwide dealer network.”
