Mack Trucks recently launched its Electrify My Refuse Route Program, a campaign that rewards customers for sharing their refuse routes to prepare the fleet’s readiness for the Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle. Through the Electrify My Refuse Route program, customers simply download the Mack Route Recorder app to receive up to $750 in Mack parts reward cards for sharing valid refuse collection routes. Customers who then purchase or lease the Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle can receive $25,000 for charging hardware reimbursement and $10,000 in additional charging reimbursements for each further vehicle purchased.
To qualify for parts reward cards and the additional incentives, customers email Mack their recorded collection routes. The customer is rewarded $250 in reward cards for each submitted qualified route, with a limit of three per customer. Those that receive charging hardware reimbursement following a purchase or lease are limited to specific charger models and manufacturers.
The Mack Ultra Service Agreement includes all preventive and corrective maintenance (excluding accidental repairs), Mack GuardDog Connect uptime services, roadside assistance, battery monitoring and an industry-leading battery performance guarantee. GuardDog Connect monitors vehicle systems, including battery health and performance, and checks for fault codes and defects reported by the battery and electric components of the energy storage system.
Mack began serial production of the LR Electric in 2021 at its Lehigh Valley Operations facility in Macungie, Pennsylvania, where all Class 8 Mack vehicles for North America and export are assembled.
