Follow-On Order and First Customer Disclosure
Kansas City-based Orange EV is spreading the word that Moran Transportation has placed a follow-on order for a 100% battery electric, T-Series terminal truck – yard spotter – for use in Moran’s Chicago operations.
“Moran has been pleased with the performance and value demonstrated with their first T-Series purchase last year,” Orange says, as “the electric truck has had an immediate and substantial effect on reducing their carbon footprint.
Cheaper Than Cheap Diesel
“Operating electric terminal trucks is reducing unit energy cost by more than 80% even with the low price of diesel fuel,” states a release.
Orange EV says that its T-Series vehicle is the first heavy-duty electric, Class 8 truck of its type commercially deployed and certified.
Standard Duty Orange EV Truck
Moran is deploying Orange EV’s standard duty truck, Orange says, “operating through the shift and then plugging in with battery to spare and recharging overnight.”
Other customers have deployed Orange EV’s extended duty truck with larger battery pack and alternate charging solutions.
