The location has 12 technicians, six of whom are master techs, and two of whom are EV-certified.

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.
