GM startup BrightDrop to make new EV service van for Verizon

General Motors’ all-electric commercial delivery startup, BrightDrop, will make a new commercial van for its next new customer: Verizon.

On Tuesday, BrightDrop unveiled the EV410, a mid-size electric commercial van designed for smaller, more frequent trips than its EV600 van, which more closely resembles the well-known brown UPS trucks.

Verizon will use the smaller EV410 in its field maintenance and service fleet, said BrightDrop CEO Travis Katz. He declined to share the size of the Verizon order, but said the EV410 is just one of many more products to come from BrightDrop.

“We have a rich pipeline of new products we’re working on,” Katz said. “You can expect this will not be the first offering we’ll be sharing on new products we’re bringing to market.”
