Orange EV now offering electric on-road terminal truck

Feb. 12, 2015

Orange EV, which offers all-electric terminal trucks, has now made available a model that is suitable for us in on-road applications for companies looking to move trailers among different terminals or facilities.

The company’s T-Series terminal trucks are available for financial incentives in many areas, including in the Chicagoland area through the Drive Clean Chicago program.  The incentive amounts recently increased to $150,000 per truck, the company said. The on-road T-Series is also approved for DCC incentives at the $150,000 level.

Using an all-electric terminal truck instead of an older, heavy-use diesel terminal truck is comparable to taking almost 100 passenger vehicles off the road and eliminating 832 tons of CO2, 23 tons of NOx, and 13 tons of CO over a 10-year period, Orange EV noted.
