Project Title Smith Electric Vehicles Medium Duty Electric Vehicle Demonstration Project
Project Status More than 50% Completed
Final Project Report Submitted No
Project Activities Description Manufacturing & Industry
Quarterly Activities/Project Description Following the DOE award in April 2010, Smith has placed in service 439 vehicles under the Demonstration Fleet Program. The objective of this program is to demonstrate 510 electric vehicles based on the Newton medium duty platform. The vehicles will be placed in locations including California, Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, Washington, DC, New York, and Texas. A Generation II Newton platform was developed during the project utilizing the performance data collected. The development of the vehicle reduces cost, expands the vehicle to class 4 through 7, and improves powertrain and vehicle efficiency. During the quarter, delivery to customer orders of the vehicles, both trucks and step vans, with Generation II systems was halted due to the Company's tight cash flow situation. However, the telemetry system continued to provide actual live data extraction of Smith vehicles already in service, consolidated and delivered to the NREL, as prescribed in the DOE/ARRA Award, for the months of September, October and November 2013. December 2013 data was submitted in early January 2014. Submissions of data are successfully occuring monthly for all in-service vehicles.
