Peterbilt has announced its largest electric vehicle order to date. The OEM has agreed to sell 150 Model 579EVs electric trucks to Einride.

Einride is a Swedish autonomous and digital freight technology developer. The companies said this order will strengthen electric heavy-duty fleets across the US as they are deployed with Einride’s customers.

Freight Capacity as a Service Role

Einride said its turnkey Freight Capacity as a Service solution provides its customers with a seamless, efficient switch to electric transportation. Einride said it does this with its ability to integrate electric vehicles, charging infrastructure and Einride Saga, the digital freight platform.

Since 2020, Einride has been operating electric large-scale fleets and exploring sustainable logistic. Now, this fleet of Peterbilt electric vehicles will service Einride’s North America customers.
