Orange EV announced it has expanded its yard truck rental program to offer the largest electric spotter rental fleet across the U.S.

These all-electric rentals are now available in 48 states, providing increased uptime and reduced costs.

Founded in 2012, Orange EV was the first US-based manufacturer to offer 100% electric Class 8 vehicles and the first to offer electric yard truck rentals. The company now has more than 450 electric yard trucks operating in all sectors of trailer and container handling operations.

Orange EV’s turnkey solution includes onsite training, portable charging cabinets, and electric yard trucks chosen by more than 130 fleets that deliver:

  •  98-99% uptime
  • Reduced fuel costs
  • Lower total cost of ownership than diesel each month
  • Safer operations with 50% shorter stopping distance
  • Zero tailpipe emissions 

Yard truck specifications include:

  • Capacity: 81,000 lbs. GCWR
  • Speed: Up to 18 mph
  • Chassis: 4x2
  • Off-road or On-road
  • A/C and Cold Weather Package
  • Telematics
  • Air Ride Cab

“Orange EV is bringing to the rental market what we've long-since delivered to purchasers: a lower total cost, more reliable yard truck to replace diesels that continually plague operators with excessive maintenance, downtime, and expenses from costly diesel fuel, finicky emissions control systems, and more,” said Zack Ruderman, the VP of sales and marketing at Orange EV. “Renting is also a great way to try before you buy to experience the Orange EV difference. Orange EV is committed to being the one-stop source for all electric yard truck needs – purchases, leases, and rentals.”
