Penske Truck Leasing is growing its electric vehicle fleet with the recent addition of the Kalmar Ottawa Electric Terminal Tractor T2E.
The Kalmar Ottawa T2E is powered by lithium-ion battery technology and features an on-board inverter charger that allows the machine to be opportunity charged during natural working breaks.
Penske Truck Leasing's subsidiary, Penske Logistics, will be the first to use the new T2E in California. The vehicle is designed for trailer-handling operations in truck yards, warehousing and distribution centers, container terminals and related operations where short-distance travel is required.
Penske has previously added light-duty, medium-duty and heavy-duty battery electric vehicles to its fleet and has also worked to build out an electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
"We remain committed to being at the forefront of commercial vehicle electrification for our customers," said Brian Hard, president and CEO of Penske Transportation Solutions. "Adding the capability of an electric terminal tractor is a natural next step as they are an essential part of the mix for fleet operations."
