“At Zeus, we are all about the evolution of the specialty vehicle market to full electric vehicles. The new Zeus truck designed for the fire and emergency market is a great example of bringing the future home today,” said Robert Grinstead, Founder and Zeus CTO. “Our technology allows us to have an industry-leading suspension travel, 16″ ground clearance and all wheel drive, making the Zeus chassis an ideal option for fighting wildfires to off-road emergency use.”
