Electric truck manufacturer Orange EV announced its second facility expansion in four years, moving ot a site with more than five times the production capacity.
Orange EV manufactures Class 8 electric terminal trucks that are currently available for order. So far, more than 60 fleets are operating Orange EV trucks, deployed in 14 states across the U.S. In California alone, Orange EV trucks are in use at more than 40 locations.
Orange EV’s 4x2 trucks are deployed coast-to-coast, working a variety of climates, including in hot deserts and cold northern winter locations. The trucks operate in all site types for which they were designed including rail intermodal, parcel, LTL freight, grocery, manufacturing/production, construction, seaport, warehouse & distribution, waste management, 3rd party logistics and with the spotting services managing cargo handling environments.
“We couldn’t have gotten here without our industry advocates and partners, including the many leading fleets who were early adopters of the first all-electric Class 8 trucks,” said Wayne Mathisen, Orange EV chief executive officer. “Today’s production trucks are several design generations beyond those first demonstrated in 2013. Orange EV has continued to innovate the T-Series electric truck as the platform of choice for the next generation in yard management solutions.”
