Penske Truck Leasing has put a battery electric eM2 from the Freightliner Innovation Fleet into service with Temco Logistics, a premier final-mile, white glove 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 enter series production in 2022, the Freightliner eM2 is expected to have up to 230-miles of range.
In 2018, Penske Truck Leasing and DTNA announced a partnership to test commercial electric trucks from DTNA’s Freightliner brand in real-world situations and drive future improvements to the technology.
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.
