Reduce Emissions and breathe easier with Orange EV

Replacing an older diesel truck with an Orange EV pure-electric terminal truck eliminates significant emissions. For example, over a 15-year lifespan, a Tier 3 diesel engine operated 6,000 hours per year at 2.5 gal/hr can emit:

  • 2,500 tons CO2
  • 26 tons NOx
  • 13 tons CO
  • 2.7 tons PM2.5

By replacing that engine with a pure-electric Orange EV terminal tractor, all of those emissions are totally eliminated!

Real-world reductions, however, may be far greater. Multiple studies have found that the performance of a diesel’s selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system is highly dependent on duty cycle. In duty cycles with significant idling, low speeds, or low loads – like those used in terminal truck operations – diesel engine temperatures do not reach levels that support sustained SCR performance. This can lead to emissions well exceeding current EPA standards.

Mitigate the need for emissions control equipment

Pure electric trucks far exceed even the Nation’s most stringent emissions requirements. By deploying Orange EV vehicles, fleet owners mitigate the need for costly – and unreliable – Tier 4 diesel emissions control systems. Tier 4 systems weren’t designed with the low speed, start-and-stop yard environment in mind. Deploying Orange EV’s zero emission vehicles avoids the fuel costs and downtime associated with these systems.

Avoid regulatory penalties and fees

Emission-free electric vehicles eliminate regulatory compliance headaches, reduce your company’s carbon footprint, and put an end to costly emissions-related fees and penalties.

Improve relationships

Orange EV’s cleaner, more efficient trucks help fleets attract and retain customers who value and choose “green” companies that enhance the lives of employees, and improve the environment in their surrounding communities.

Invest capital wisely

Fossil fuels are dirty, costly, and unsustainable. Converting to electric instead of natural gas or other fossil fuel solutions prevents fleets from stranding capital in alternate technologies that have limited useful lives. Orange EV trucks use the cleanest, most efficient, and lowest cost fuel sources.
