According to the press release, TaaS provides shippers and carriers access to Class 8 battery-electric trucks at a per-mile rate, including charging, that is on par with the total cost of operating diesel trucks. It sounds like a great opportunity for a fleet to switch to electric drive, without high upfront costs. 110 Volvo VNR Electric for Maersk The second order, announced today, is even bigger – actually a new record. Maersk, a global logistics company, has ordered 110 Volvo VNR Electric (on top of 16 vehicles ordered previously for a total of 126) for use in North America – specifically in California. The first vehicles are expected to be delivered in Q2 2022, while all 126 trucks are scheduled for deployment by the first quarter of 2023. “The Class 8 electric trucks will be used in California for a variety of transport assignments, serving port drayage and warehouse distribution routes.” Maersk announced this month that ot will add 300 new all-electric trucks, in the largest heavy-duty electric truck deployment in North America to date. According to the press release, the initial batch of trucks is Class 8 8TT Gen 3 manufactured by BYD, which will be deployed in partnership with Einride, which in February ordered 200 BYD 8TT battery-electric day cab trucks. Now with the numbers finally reaching three digits, the electric truck market is finally taking off.
