“Today there are hundreds of thousands of Sprinter vans on the road in the U.S. In a typical year, there are 45,000 Sprinter vans sold, mostly used for commercial operations. If even half of the vans sold in one year are diesel engines, those vans alone are adding over 2 million pounds of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere during normal daily operation. In a typical work year, a single diesel van will produce over 27,000 lbs. of CO2 emissions. Businesses can see a solid ROI and make an incredible impact, even if they only convert 1 van. Our initial goal is to convert 5,000 vans and save over 144 million pounds of CO2 from being emitted into our atmosphere” said James Johnson, Sales Director of ZEV.
The path to EV adoption is closer than we think. ZEV is a company committed to helping everyone move to electric. ZEV is EV for All.
CO2 Estimation is based on the EPA values of 22.2lbs of CO2 emissions from a gallon of diesel. A single delivery van averages 4-5 gallons of consumption per workday. A work year is assumed to be 261 days. 5000 vans x 5 gallons per day x 22.2 lbs CO2 per gallon x 261 days = 144,855,000. There are currently 3.4 million registered Vans and Trucks on the road in Arizona alone.
