DTNA delivers 20 BEV eCascadia Freightliners to Reyes Coca-Cola

Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling said the 20 DTNA eCascadias are expected to reduce the use of 40,000 gallons of diesel fuel per year.

Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) recently delivered 20 zero-emission, battery electric Freightliner eCascadia Class 8 tractors to Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling (RCCB), a West Coast and Midwest bottler and distributor of Coca-Cola brands. These electric vehicles will join RCCB’s fleet of delivery trucks in Downey, California, and represent the first zero-emission heavy-duty tractors added to its California fleet.

RBBC’s eCascadias will rely solely on 20 Detroit eFill commercial charging stations installed at the Downey facility. To complement the charging stations, RCCB said it is leveraging the Detroit Charger Management System, a software solution providing a view of their electric fleet, which enables efficient energy management to ultimately reduce operational costs. The 20 eCascadias are expected to reduce the use of 40,000 gallons of diesel fuel per year for RCCB, Daimler said.

“We’re excited to roll out these 100% electric, zero-emission heavy-duty tractors,” said Tim Heinen, vice president, of strategic infrastructure and development, RCCB. “Our electric fleet for Downey, which now includes electric semi-trucks and electric customer care vehicles, will serve customers throughout Southern California and build on our commitment to make a positive difference in our communities.”
