BrightDrop Secured Verizon as the First Customer of its Second Electric Van

BrightDrop has introduced its new EV410 light duty electric van, and Verizon became its first customer

  • BrightDrop is a company making electric delivery vans that is part of General Motors

  • The new EV410 will join the EV600 in 2023

  • Verizon is the first customer of the new van, FedEx is the first customer of the larger EV600

BrightDrop is a new brand founded by General Motors to produce electric delivery vans that can replace diesel powered ones in order to reduce emissions.

The EV410 is the second product presented by BrightDrop and it is smaller than the EV600. The EV410 name refers to the cargo capacity of the vehicle, which is 410 cubic feet (11,610 liters).

Both BrightDrop vans are powered by General Motors’ new Ultium battery and motors, which should allow both models to offer a range of up to 250 miles (402 kilometers).

The EV410 is designed to suit light delivery duties, such as groceries, or to serve as a service vehicle, which is the purpose it will serve for Verizon. Its smaller size will also allow it to fit in a regular parking space and make it easier to drive around busy cities.

FedEx was the first company to show interest in electric delivery vehicles when it ordered 500 of the EV600 model, with Merchants Fleet buying 12,600 of them shortly after. Verizon hasn’t revealed how many of the EV410 model it ordered.

General Motors claims businesses could save up to $7,000 a year by replacing their diesel-powered vans with the EV600, which should be available by the end of the year, making it the fastest developed GM product ever.

The EV410 should join the EV600 in 2023 on the assembly lines of General Motors’ CAMI plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, a former GM-Suzuki joint venture where the Chevrolet Equinox is currently being manufactured.
