PG&E Bringing in Extended Range Work Trucks

Fleets & Fuels - September 16, 2013

The Cal­i­for­nia Ener­gy Com­mis­sion is sup­port­ing devel­op­ment of a plug-in hybrid elec­tric class five work truck by PG&E and Elec­tric Vehi­cles Inter­na­tion­al (EVI). The REEV (Range-Extend­ed Elec­tric Vehi­cle) util­i­ty truck is to have an all-elec­tric range of 45 miles. PG&E fore­casts that it would save $3 mil­lion annu­al­ly in fuel costs and reduce car­bon emis­sions by over 19 mil­lion if all of its class five work trucks were replaced with the REEV.
