General Motors Co.’s electric van unit plans to build a new midsized cargo hauler called the EV410, and has signed up Verizon Communications Inc. as the first buyer, the company said Tuesday.

GM announced the formation of BrightDrop, a wholly owned subsidiary that supplies battery-powered vans and offers fleet-management services, in January. Since then, the automaker has been gearing up to produce its larger electric van, the EV600, with the first 500 slated to go to FedEx Corp. The company said it’s on track to deliver those vans to FedEx by the end of the year.
