Lightning Systems, specialising in zero-emission drivetrains, has announced an order from the California Department of State Hospitals for 12 zero-emission, all-electric Ford Transit 350HD models.
The Lightning EVs are based on Ford and Chevrolet chassis converted to all-electric while maintaining the standard warranty.
“We are very pleased that the California Department of State Hospitals selected our zero-emission, all-electric vehicles to move medical materials and transport cargo,” said Tim Reeser, CEO, Lightning Systems. “This is a very challenging time for all hospitals, and we send a heartfelt thank you to all of the first responders and doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers who are working tirelessly during this time of crisis.”
The Department of State Hospitals (DSH) manages the California state hospital system, which provides mental health services to patients admitted into DSH facilities. DSH oversees five state hospitals – Atascadero, Coalinga, Metropolitan (in Los Angeles County), Napa and Patton. In the financial year 2018-2019, the DHS employed nearly 13,000 staff and served 11,752 patients.
