Firefly Transportation Services recently partnered with Orange EV to deliver the all new T-Series Tandem (TST) pure-electric terminal truck.

“Orange EV is pleased to partner with Firefly Transportation Services to offer the industry’s first all-new pure-electric tandem axle yard truck, enabling zero-emission goods movement across public roads with a full load,” said Wayne Mathisen, Orange EV CEO.

The T-Series Tandem 6x2 is designed to legally transport loads up to 81,000 pounds on public roads and will be built to meet site-specific requirements and duty cycles.

“Having successfully run single-axle Orange EV trucks for over three years, Firefly TS is thrilled to be bringing our first Tandem EV T-Series unit to our clients, increasing our ability to provide short-haul shuttles,” said Mike Bohnstengel, Firefly Transportation Services principal partner.

Orange EV will be accepting pre-orders for the T-Series Tandem in the fourth quarter of 2020. Over the coming months, Orange EV plans to introduce further innovations in the heavy-duty electric space, including advances enabling autonomous operations, according to Kurt Neutgens, Orange EV’s chief technology officer.
