Time to Charge
Batteries can charge fully in as little as two (2) hours.
Any time your Orange EV truck is parked is the perfect time to charge! Trucks can be plugged in to recover charge throughout the day, taking advantage of routine downtime during breaks, lunch, and shift changes.
When to Charge
Most fleets routinely recover battery throughout the day by ‘opportunity charging. By keeping the battery at a higher charge, you will be able to reduce overall charge time. When starting at a higher charge (e.g. 50% still on the battery) it takes about half the time to obtain a full charge.
Right sizing the number of charging stations you need on-site is one more way Orange EV helps you save money!
Charging stations charge one truck at a time and can serve multiple trucks by rotating as needed. So, instead of a 1:1 ratio of charging stations to trucks, many Orange EV enabled sites install one station for every two or three trucks.
Every site’s electrical capacity is different, although most already have what’s needed for their initial Orange EV trucks. Our team works with your facility management team and electricians to understand what’s available and to identify the best possible charging solutions.
