Warehouses, Ports Can Reduce Emissions with Electric Yard Tractor
A new lithium-ion battery powered heavy duty electric vehicle may be an option for companies aiming to reduce emissions at warehouses, ports, railyards and industrial plants.
The vehicle is currently being evaluated by the Port of Los Angeles, reports the Santa Monica Daily Press.
The port also recently signed a deal to purchase hydrogen fuel cell yard rigs from Vision Industries. Those trucks cost about $255,000 apiece and can go about 200 miles over an eight hour shift.
The Nautilus is rated for Class 7 and 8 applications, while Vision Industries’ vehicle is rated for Class 8 operations.
Here’s a video of the Nautilus in action.
