Ryder places first order for Chanje electric trucks

Ryder-Chanje

Ryder System Inc. has started to take delivery of 125 medium-duty electric panel vans from Chanje Energy, now available for lease or rent. The Chanje all-electric large delivery style van is equipped to haul up to 6,000 lbs. and up to 580 cu. ft. of cargo, all with zero vehicle exhaust emissions. Ryder also plans to equip its maintenance facilities in the San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, and San Jose, Calif. markets, as well as in the Chicago and New York markets, with the latest technology in commercial electric vehicle (EV) charging.

“The roll out of our new electric vehicle offering reinforces Ryder’s leadership in commercial advanced vehicle technology solutions and demonstrates our commitment to identifying innovative ways to meet our customers’ transportation needs,” said Dennis Cooke, president of global fleet management solutions for Ryder. “We are proud to partner with Chanje to bring an all-electric medium-duty vehicle to market as this will further promote energy efficiency in the industry by allowing our rental and lease customers to implement electric vehicles into their operations on a short-term or long-term basis.”

The Chanje all-electric large delivery style vans will become available for Ryder ChoiceLease and rental customers in most of the aforementioned markets by the end of 2017. These initial 125 EVs will be maintained at Ryder’s facilities in the California, New York, and Illinois markets where EV charging stations are being installed. Ryder is leveraging Chanje’s energy services solutions business and is equipping Ryder locations with charging stations from eMotorWerks, Chanje’s recently announced partner. eMotorWerks is providing JuiceBox Pro 40 level 2 charging stations for installation at this first wave of Ryder EV maintenance facilities. These smart charging stations connect with a customized cloud-based JuiceNet control platform to manage EV charging, including remote access control, automatic energy management to avoid peak pricing, smart algorithms to maximize charging with available renewable energy from the grid and electricity usage tracking.

Ryder is the exclusive distribution and service provider for Chanje’s medium-duty EV fleet for which the company is offering preventive maintenance solutions as part of Ryder’s SelectCare fleet maintenance portfolio.

“Ryder’s order of 125 Chanje electric trucks is significant because it demonstrates their commitment to all-electric commercial mobility and their role as our sales channel and service partner,” said Bryan Hansel, founder and chief executive officer of Chanje. “There is a pent-up customer demand for commercial electric vehicles, which makes today’s delivery of Chanje electric truck to Ryder a significant milestone.”
