Mack says the partnership will provide customers access to on-hand inventory and hardware installation services.

Mack Trucks announced that it has entered partnerships with Heliox and Gilbarco Veeder-Root to help encourage customer adoption of battery-electric vehicles (BEV) such as the Mack LR Electric, Mack’s first fully electric Class 8 refuse truck.

According to a press release from Mack Trucks, these agreements offer end-to-end support and enable customer accessibility to Mack partners who will help them in their journey toward zero-emissions technology. Additionally, this provides customers access to on-hand inventory, hardware installation services and support resources focused on charger uptime. Gilbarco Veeder-Root is based in Greensboro, North Carolina, and Heliox is based in Atlanta, Georgia.

The next generation Mack LR Electric offers 42% more energy and a standard 376kWh total battery capacity for increased range between charges, the company says. Twin electric motors with 448 continuous horsepower and a 4,051 lb.-ft. of peak torque output from zero RPM power the vehicle.
