A recent article from Today’s Trucking notes that yard trucks “…seem to be a perfect application for an electric powertrain….” It goes on to say:

“To get around the hassles and expense associated with Tier 4 engines, some yard tractor manufacturers went to gasoline engines, but those lacked the torque to get the job done.

Enter the electric yard tractor.”

Orange EV’s 100% electric yard trucks do the same work as diesels but with zero emissions, no Tier 4 costs or downtime, and reduced operating costs. Fleets utilizing electric yard trucks are saving up to 90% net in fuel, an estimated 95% on brake maintenance, and 100% on engine and transmission-related powertrain maintenance.
