The pictured Star EV 48U-HA1 vehicle is used by the City of Charlotte for street maintenance and recycling pick up. This vehicle can be off road or Street legal and can carry up to 2,000 lb payload if used off road. The versatility is great as this Utility truck can be fitted with turf type tires on the rear for off road traction, yet has a wheel back design for improved turning radius. At a cost of about $10,000 fully enclosed and street legal, this vehicle can out-perform many of the “white trucks” that cost, in many cases, double the cost of the Star 48U-HA1.
Charlotte is not alone, other Cities across the country are trading out gas UTV’s and small trucks for clean, green electric work vehicles. The City of Greenville, SC has been using two street legal Star EV’s for on and off road maintenance. The vehicles get used extensively on a daily basis and have been in service for over a year now. Businesses, Universities and Government agencies are all converting a large portion of their gas fleets to electric.
