Spartan Motors designed, engineered, and manufactured its 14-foot Utilimaster walk-in van for the Hawaiian Electric Company. It’s built on a Ford F-59 commercial chassis and has a Kubota gas generator.

It will be used to service and maintain the underground electrical infrastructure in Honolulu, Hawaii.

"The walk-in van gave customers the opportunity to see the degree to which we enable our utility service clients with customized vehicle solutions," Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services President Chad Heminover said. "Working closely with our customers through our work-driven design process enables a better understanding of their drivers, technicians, and the mission, which helps them more efficiently tackle the job at hand."
