Old Dominion Freight Line adds electric terminal tractor to fleet

Autocar delivers first all-electric terminal tractor to Old Dominion Freight Line

Autocar has delivered its first battery-electric terminal tractor, the E-ACTT, to its customer, Old Dominion Freight Line. Autocar delivered the electric terminal tractor to Old Dominion Freight Line’s facility in Rialto, California for driver orientation before the international freight line deploys the truck into the field.

Autocar, an original equipment manufacturer, announced the purpose-built E-ACTT in 2021. The E-ACTT is equipped with a 210-kWh modular battery pack that can last up to 22 hours on a single, full charge. The E-ACTT uses the industry standard CCS-1 compliant DC fast charging with charging up to 150 kW. Autocar utilizes liquid cooled/heated batteries.

With its monitoring and telematics system, the E-ACTT can communicate maintenance and repair needs to the fleet, Autocar says.
