Penske Truck Leasing is adding Orange EV electric terminal trucks for use with customers across the U.S. The vehicles are designed for trailer-handling operations in truck yards, warehousing and distribution centers, container terminals and related operations where short-distance moves are required.
These units will be leased and maintained by Penske. Charging will take place in the customer’s yard, plugging in when the vehicles are not in operation.
Orange EV says notable features and benefits of its trucks include:
- Zero tailpipe emissions
- Regenerative braking with 50% shorter stopping distance
- Operates up to 24 hours on a single charge
- Digital cab architecture
- Remote diagnostic capabilities
