Orange EV said its retrofitted electric terminal truck completed a two-week demonstration at a Kansas intermodal facility.
The T-Series electric terminal completed more than 400 runs, lifting and pulling a gross combined weight rating of 81,000 pounds, according to Orange.
During the test, the terminal truck’s battery operated 10 hours or more on a single charge, according to the company.
The retrofitted terminal truck has a replaced powertrain and control system, and the company refurbishes the rest of the truck.
The demonstration took place at ITS Technology & Logistics’ intermodal facility in Edgerton, Kansas.
“We needed to see that Orange EV’s all-electric terminal truck could do the job and get through a shift on a single charge. They’ve convinced our team,” Ron Teague, ITS senior vice president of intermodal operation, said in a statement. “Orange EV’s T-Series demonstrated it has the endurance and the power we need.”
