STRATEGIC PARTNERS

At this time, the key to sucess in the commercial EV truck business is actually having trucks.  There is a lot of hype in this industry at present.  But not at SOZ - WE HAVE TRUCKS in operation, more being assembled, and a leasing program that is underway.  

  • Our strategic partner ELO was the first to convert an 80 passenger Type D Bluebird school bus to 100% electric. This same team was also the first group to repower a Ford 150 to 100% electric. SOZ has an exclusive arrangement to with ELO to repower a specific line of medium-duty trucks that are very popular with commercial fleet operators in the United States. 
  • Founded in 1920, Smith Electric Vehicles manufactures and markets zero-emission commercial electric vehicles that are designed to be a superior alternative to traditional diesel trucks and provide a lower total cost of ownership.  SOZ has a preferred contract to service and lease Smith EV's in specified locations. 
  • We collaborate with local electricians and mechanics who become certified SOZ technicians. These technicians assemble, install and maintain our trucks at our SOZ locations. Through this collaboration effort, SOZ will be develop the green-color jobs of the future in this emerging industry.
