Orange EV is developing new electric terminal trucks designed to meet the increased cargo handling and lifting demands required by port and rail intermodal operations. They are scheduled to be available in the third quarter of 2022.
The company’s T-Series Class 8 electric terminal trucks have been commercially deployed since 2015. The new series boasts new design elements and additional power to deliver the increased performance required by faster-paced, maximum-load operations:
- Speed: Up to 32 mph
- GCWR: 180,000 pounds
- Battery capacity: Up to 233 kWh Super Duty
- Fast charging for 24-hour operations
- Reinforced frame and boom
- ROPS/FOPS compliant
- Increased hydraulic capacity
Orange EV said the new trucks also will perform especially well in distribution centers and other environments that operate with very heavy loads, steep grades, and/or require faster speeds.
"Orange EV understands the vital role that today's port and rail hubs play in goods movement, warehousing, and freight distribution," said Kurt Neutgens, Orange EV's chief technology officer.
Orange EV is now accepting pre-orders.
