Penske Truck Leasing is adding four Fuso eCanter battery-electric work trucks to its fleets.

Penske will initially take delivery of four Fuso eCanter battery-electric work trucks for use in California. The company has also partnered with Fuso’s parent company, Daimler Trucks North America, to test other electric vehicles including the Freightliner eM2 and eCascadia.

“We’re pleased to begin introducing the eCanter into our fleet,” said Brian Hard, president and chief executive officer of Penske Truck Leasing. “We continue to invest in the latest viable innovative vehicle technologies to benefit our customers. With an initial estimated range of up to 80 miles and a fast-charging option, the eCanter is a viable option for fleets seeking to reduce tailpipe emissions and noise pollution in urban delivery settings.”

“Our leadership in electric trucks answers, today, the public’s need for zero tailpipe emissions, zero-noise trucks for continuously increasing demands for inner-city distribution,” said Justin Palmer, president and chief executive officer of Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America. “We applaud early-adopters, such as Penske, for their leadership and partnership. These remarkable eCanter truck operators are building the case that electric trucks are an essential part of the future of inner-city distribution.”

Fuso recently provided an update on electrification and the progress of the eCanter series, which you can read here.
