Boulder Electric Vehicle is a manufacturer of electric-powered commercial vans and trucks based in Lafayette, Colorado.[1] The company is producing four CARB certified models: an electric delivery van, a 15 passenger shuttle, a service body and a flat bed.[2] Boulder Electric Vehicles ended production in September 2014.[3]


Boulder Electric Vehicles produces four vehicles and all models share the same specs and functionality. The Boulder EVs are powered by an 80 kW electric motor and the customer can chose among three available all-electric ranges of 40 mi (64 km), 80 mi (130 km), or 120 mi (190 km). The van model has a payload capacity of 4,500 lb (2,000 kg) and the truck 6,000 lb (2,700 kg). Maximum speed is 65 mph (105 km/h).[2] All vehicles use lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery packs. The DV-500 Delivery Vehicle, the first model delivered to retail customers, is priced at US$100,000 with an 80-kWh battery pack that delivers a range of 120 mi (190 km).[4][5]
