Navistar Delivers eStar Electric Trucks to PG&E
Navistar has delivered some of its first eStar electric trucks to Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) in Sacramento, Calif.With a range of 100 miles per charge, the eStar electric truck is ideal for many urban applications. When it returns to its home base at the end of the day, customers can plug it in for a full recharge within approximately six to eight hours.
With zero tailpipe emissions, each eStar truck can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 10 tons annually, says Navistar.
Navistar also announced its first eStar dealer for the California market—Riverview International Trucks, Inc., of West Sacramento. With the eStar truck making its debut in Sacramento today, Navistar is fully capable to support its customers through select dealers networked in its initial launch regions.
Full production of the eStar began in May at the company’s Wakarusa, Ind., facility. Navistar’s initial customer—FedEx—has four of the trucks in use in the Los Angeles area. Navistar plans to deliver 400 units to additional customers by the end of 2010.
