Penske Adds Fuso Electric Work Trucks
By Mike Osenga19 March 2019
Penske Truck Leasing is adding Fuso eCanter battery-electric work trucks to its logistics, leasing and rental fleets. Penske said it is among the first fleet operators to take delivery of these limited-production medium-duty vehicles.
Penske will initially take delivery of four Fuso eCanter battery-electric work trucks for use in California. The introduction of these new all-electric commercial vehicles into Penske’s fleet is another in a series of moves the company has made recently to test electric vehicles with its customers including the Freightliner eM2 and eCascadia from Daimler Trucks North America, a sister organization of Fuso.
“We’re pleased to begin introducing the eCanter into our fleet,” said Brian Hard, president and CEO 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.” tag;\ls
