UQM Technologies Inc. announces its e-drive partnership with Muncie, IN-based DD DANNAR, LLC (DANNAR). DANNAR has introduced its Mobile Power Station (MPS), a heavy-duty EV designed for infrastructure maintenance and disaster response, powered by UQM’s heavy-duty e-drive system. This innovative vehicle will provide clean energy for single-day or multiple-day work requirements. Its two-way charger and inverter allows for emergency export power from the battery system for large buildings or neighborhoods. It is outfitted with a hydraulic tool and attachment system and optional DANNAR work arms that can be equipped with any CAT or Bobcat attachments. It can be outfitted with multiple seasonal configurations, making it more cost-effective to operate, while providing more work value than traditional diesel equipment such as tractors, skid steers, and wheel loaders.

“UQM has been with us every step of the way and is the ideal electric propulsion partner for this type of mission critical heavy-duty electric off road zero-emission vehicle,” says Gary Dannar, founder and CEO of DANNAR. “UQM’s leading power density and e-drive technology pairs perfectly with our other industry leading partners, and has helped create this extraordinary vehicle.”

According to UQM CEO Joseph Mitchell, “The DANNAR Mobile Power Station is an innovative and important vehicle, and we see this technology leading the movement towards off-road utility applications and mobile power for many critical infrastructure needs. We are very pleased to have DANNAR utilizing UQM’s drive systems.”
