Cenntro Automotive Group (Cenntro) unveiled its plans to expand its product portfolio with a purpose-built, all-electric Class 4 vehicle to serve the last-mile urban delivery market.
The vehicle, called the CityPorter, offers a unique solution to fleets and logistics customers, offering a range of up to 220 miles on a single charge, a payload of 5,700 pounds, and a top speed of 60 mph.
The CityPorter was purpose-built to support last mile delivery needs with its generous payload and 636 square feet of cargo capacity. Cenntro anticipates showcasing the CityPorter to US fleets in the second half of 2021 and is currently looking at opportunities to engage in demo programs for US and EU fleets.
“We are confident that we can ramp up our production as we move through 2021 and introduce the CityPorter to US and European markets, delivering the quality and performance that top tier fleets demand,” said Peter Wang, Chairman, and CEO.
The CityPorter will be equipped with Cenntro’s state-of-the-art telematics. Cenntro’s Smart platform drives powerful two-way data exchange and offers fleet management advanced integration with other business applications optimizing route planning, reducing downtime, and delivering true big data management.
To support the launch of CityPorter, Cenntro plans to expand its infrastructure in both the US and Europe and in late 2021. Also, Cenntro will open an Engineering and Innovation Center in New Jersey in the second quarter of 2021. “We intent to move closer to our customers as we expand our products portfolio,” continued Peter Wang.
