The REEFERX has a range of up to 150 miles and a payload capacity of up to 5,500 pounds. It's customizable for low- or high-voltage refrigerator units, depending on uses. There are also various insulation thicknesses available and mutliple door options. A rear door is standard with an option rear roll-up door, optional side door and other locations.

"Federal and state regulations continue to drive the rapid adoption of all-electric commercial vehicles," Riley says. "The global refrigerated trucks market size reached $9.8 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $15.4 billion by 2032. With mandates, such as California's requirements for all transportation refrigeration units (TRUs) to achieve zero emissions by the end of 2029, 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."
