UQM Technologies (www.uqm.com) said it has received a $9.25 million production order from Phoenix Motorcars, Inc. (www.phoenixmotorcars.com) for UQM electric propulsion systems to power Phoenix's electric-powered Sport Utility Truck (SUT).

UQM Technologies has received a $9.25 million production order from Phoenix Motorcars Inc. for UQM electric propulsion systems to power Phoenix's electric-powered sport utility truck (SUT). The order also includes an onboard UQM dc-to-dc converter to power the vehicle’s instrumentation. Deliveries under the order, which raises UQM’s production backlog to approximately $14 million, are tentatively scheduled over the next year.

The Phoenix SUT is powered by a 100 kW UQM electric propulsion system that produces more than 400 ft.-lbs. of torque, accelerates the vehicle from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 10 seconds, has a top speed of 100 miles per hour and operates at peak system efficiencies of more than 94%.

The vehicle's 35 kWh NanoSafe battery pack, supplied by Altair Nanotechnologies Inc. can be recharged in less than 10 minutes. In a typical fleet duty cycle the vehicle will travel up to 135 miles between charges. The vehicle is expected to qualify as a type III ZEV (zero emission vehicle) in California.
