Mack Trucks dealer TEC Equipment achieves certified EV dealer status

Mack Trucks announced that TEC Equipment in Oakland, Calif., is now a Certified Electric Vehicle (EV) Dealer and will now be able to service and support the Mack LR Electric refuse truck. Mack made the announcement at the ACT Expo, May 9-12, at the Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach Claif..This is the third TEC Equipment location in California to be EV-certified. The first was Fontana and La Mirada was the second. TEC Oakland is a Mack Certified Uptime Dealer.

EV certification requires dealerships to meet numerous stringent infrastructure, safety, charging, tooling and training requirements. Updating the facility is also required. TEC met frequently with the Mack team during the process to ensure they met all standards to be EV-certified.

TEC Oakland, located at 8099 S. Coliseum Way, has 18 service bays, with three of them dedicated to electric vehicles. The location has 12 technicians, six of whom are master techs, and two of whom are EV-certified. The 45,000 square-foot site on 6.5 acres offers $2.3 million in parts inventory, with more than 22,500 parts in stock.

Offering 42% more energy, the next generation Mack LR Electric features a standard 376 kWh total battery capacity for increased range between charges. Twin electric motors produce 448 continuous HP and 4,051 lb.-ft. of peak torque output from zero RPM.

Four Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (NMC) lithium-ion batteries, charged through a 150 kW, SAE J1772-compliant charging system, powers the vehicle and all onboard accessories through 12V, 24V and 600V circuits. The two-stage regenerative braking system helps recapture energy from the hundreds of stops the vehicle makes each day with an increasing load.
