Penske Truck Leasing and Shell Recharge Solutions North America announced a joint initiative to support light-duty electric vehicle charging at Penske locations.

The move follows Penske’s recently announced order of 750 all-electric Ford E-Transit cargo vans.

The project with Shell will initially deploy Level 2 electric truck charging stations with plug-and-charge capabilities, to support Penske’s growing battery-electric truck fleet in California.

Additional sites will be rolled out in four states in 2022 with more locations expected to be added in 2023 and beyond. Of the 33 Penske Truck Leasing sites that will feature Shell Recharge Solutions 23 will be constructed in California, three in Washington state, two each in Colorado, Illinois and Oregon, and one station will be located in Reading, Pa. This will bring the Penske Shell L2 network to a total of 79 chargers.

To support Penske, Shell Recharge Solutions will deliver design, installation and charging network support through its SKY software platform. —Transport Topics
