With a goal to successfully certify their fully electric Z-19 and Z-22 models Federally and in the state of California, Zeus and ECO teams have now achieved EPA/CARB certification, with additional zero-emission models to follow in the coming months.

With their new California Executive Order certificates approved, Zeus has made the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) eligibility list that was just released last week. Zeus has also confirmed purchase orders with their first customer, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD). Zeus is set to deliver five zero-emission trucks to SMUD in May, and each of the five unique vehicles in the first shipment will be configured to fit SMUD’s specific needs.
