Penske Truck Leasing has put a battery-electric eM2 from the Freightliner Innovation Fleet into service with Temco Logistics, a solutions provider delivering and installing appliances and home goods.
The Class 6 electric vehicle is currently being used by Temco for delivery and installation of appliances to residential homes, providing service throughout Northern Orange County (Yorba Linda, Anaheim, Anaheim Hills) and the Inland Empire. The vehicle makes up to 18 stops per day, averaging 300 miles per week. When it enters series production in 2022, the Freightliner eM2 is expected to have up to 230 miles of range, the company says.
The electric truck fleet is supported by a network of heavy-duty electric vehicle charging stations at six Penske Truck Leasing facilities in Southern California. Penske also performs preventive maintenance at these locations.
