BYD delivers its first battery electric terminal tractor to Manhattan Beer Distributors

Manhattan Beer Distributors just received an electric terminal tractor which can provide 22 to 26 hours of consecutive operation.

BYD (Build Your Dreams) delivered an 8Y terminal tractor last month to a New York beer and beverage wholesaler, Manhattan Beer Distributors. This is the first electric terminal tractor in the company’s fleet of over 355 trucks, which deliver products to New York City, Long Island and the Hudson Valley. Milea Truck Sales and Leasing, a BYD truck dealer, helped deliver this truck, which can provide 22 to 26 hours of consecutive operation.

Manhattan Beer Distributors says it has emphasized the importance of alternative fuel solutions for over two decades in order to improve air quality for its communities and minimize its environmental footprint. Manhattan Beer’s green initiatives can be seen throughout several areas of its business, expanding beyond their electrified fleets into recycling operations and solar panel investments, the company says.

BYD trucks are assembled by members of the Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transit (SMART) worker’s union, Local 105, in BYD’s manufacturing facility located in Lancaster, CA.
