Six all-electric, zero-emissions trucks delivering
San Francisco, New York City, Washington, D.C., Hartford, Conn., and Los Angeles are the first cities to benefit from this clean-air initiative. The new eStar vehicles have zero tailpipe emissions, producing no more air pollution than a bicycle or rickshaw. The trucks run up to 100 miles per charge and can be fully recharged in six to eight hours. A quick-change cassette-type battery can be swapped out in 20 minutes, enabling around-the-clock operation. As a result, greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by as much as 10 tons annually.
Same Fizz, Less Gas
The eStar electric truck launch coincides with a promising new partnership with the Department of Energy (DOE). The DOE recently recognized
The electric vehicles are the latest demonstration of
"Our energy-efficiency work is focused on meaningfully reducing the overall carbon footprint of our operations," says Brian Kelley, CCR chief product supply officer. "We do this through a variety of technologies that produce energy efficiencies across all areas of our business."
