Panasonic collaborates with Tropos Motors to advance electric compact utility vehicles

News

Panasonic, the world’s leading automotive battery supplier, announced today that, together with Tropos Motors, the companies will bring advanced levels of connectivity, efficiency and performance to compact commercial vehicles; the second largest class of fleet vehicles.

Panasonic is at the smart transportation forefront, addressing the “right-sizing” trend which acknowledges that commercial vehicles can be smaller with very few compromises but with a lot of added benefits. With low-speed electric compact utility vehicles (eCUV), benefits to the fleet owner include lower cost of purchase with a reduced cost of operation and maintenance, which equates to a quicker return on investment. Additionally, Tropos Motors' eCUV, The ABLE, offers unparalleled versatility combined with superior payload and towing capabilities with a significantly reduced environmental footprint.

“Panasonic is working together with Tropos Motors to address the needs of businesses that depend on small commercial vehicles with the right mix of technologies and electrification solutions that also add societal value by providing cleaner alternatives,” said Scott Morrison, Director of Advanced Engineering at Panasonic Automotive. “If you can have a vehicle that has all of the capabilities of a larger truck, but in a smaller package, that is what makes it more appropriate for the job.”

Tropos Technologies is a developer of electric vehicle technology. As a leader in the eCUV market, Tropos Motors offers a diverse portfolio of hyper-efficient electric utility trucks with their ABLE platform. Models are designed for utility and versatility while keeping environmental concerns and safety at the forefront. Tropos ABLE vehicles vary in applications, ranging from emergency services to facilities, agriculture, and last-mile cargo delivery.

“Panasonic has positioned themselves as a trusted source in end-to-end transportation energy solutions,” said John Bautista, Founder and CEO of Tropos Technologies. “One of the things we at Tropos Technologies bring to Panasonic is our ability to take their technologies and put them into practical applications very efficiently in our Tropos Motors vehicle platforms.”
