The commercial automotive industry is eager to find different ways to cut fuel costs and to lower the CO2 emissions of the big oil burners. If until recently an electric truck seemed to be a fairy tale, today this concept became reality as the new Boulder Electric Vehicle is ready to be delivered to its first customer. The first model was sold to Denver-area Precision Plumbing,Heating & Cooling who declared that they will buy a total of 20 electric trucks from Boulder.

The DV-500 is a 7000 pounds electric vehicle with a loading capacity of two tones and 120 miles per charge autonomy. The DV-500 takes its energy from an 80 kilowatt lithium iron phosphate battery which can be fully charged in only 8 hours. The Boulder DV-500 is the first electric commercial vehicle that has a maximum speed of 70 mph. Despite the fact that the DV-500 is priced pretty expensive at 70.000 US dollars, judging by the fuel savings and low taxes, Precision Plumbing’s Tom Robichaud expects to save between $6,000-$8,000 per year for every vehicle used.

Boulder Electric Vehicle plans to expand its truck lineup and besides the new 500 cubic DV-500, the company has already started working on a bigger 1000 cubic foot truck.
