UPDATE December 2019: Orange EV’s commercially deployed fleet has surpassed 368,000 “key on” hours and 1.16 million miles.
KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 7, 2017 Orange EV today announced a number of milestones achieved by its deployed fleet of heavy duty electric trucks. The firm continues to be recognized for the success of its T-series electric terminal trucks, the first commercially-deployed class 8 trucks that are 100% electric. These milestones showing the strength of Orange EV’s team and electric terminal truck solution include:
Not only are Orange EV electric terminal trucks deployed from California to New York, they are receiving strong public reviews . According to this 2016 drive-test review from HDT Trucking Info “There’s no arguing with the utility of an electric terminal tractor. Gone are all the usual concerns about EV range. These trucks are almost exactly the same truck you are currently using except for the powertrain, so there’s little transition anxiety. They are as capable as any diesel-powered hostler, and for the environmentally conscious, they produce zero on-site emissions.”
In other recent news, fleet customers have shared their Orange EV stories:
Orange EV electric terminal trucks do the same work fleet owners expect but with no diesel fuel, no emissions, reduced operating costs, and an improved driver experience that is cooler, smoother, quieter, and cleaner. From single shift to 24×7 operations, Orange EV electric terminal trucks are operating up to 24+ hours per charge.
Because total cost of ownership is often less than that of a diesel, fleets can deploy Orange EV’s electric trucks without incentives using existing capital and expense budgets. With discounts and grants, however, fleets can renew fleet assets and minimize annual operating costs at greatly reduced capital investment. Current incentive programs can save fleets up to 85% per truck in purchase price. Volkswagen Mitigation Trust Fund grants are expected to be announced by year-end which in every state could pay up to 75% of project costs.
Orange EV provides fleets with a 100% electric, no-diesel, no-emission alternative that’s commercially deployed and proven. Fleets should contact Orange EVto learn more about saving money with a better truck.
