BYD * USA: On a roll after bumpy start

* California - Electric truck and bus maker's T9 cab and chassis basis Class 8 electric trucks

--- The first two of the Class 8 off-road tractors were delivered to the Port of Los Angeles late last year under a $26.6-million “green terminal” demonstration project funded by the California Air Resources Board and the terminal operator, Pasha Stevedoring and Terminals... Additionally, the company is supplying 27 medium- and heavy-duty electric trucks for freight handling and service truck duties at a trio of railway and truck freight yards in inland Southern California under a $9.1-million grant from the state’s air quality regulators... BYD also is developing a heavy-duty trash truck and a Class 8 on-road tractor for the U.S. market, using a model already in service in China...  The trucks will use the company’s integrated rear-axle motor with an internal transmission. The over-the-road truck can travel 100 miles on a single charge of its batteries, he said... Down the road, he said, are plans for Class 1 to 4 trucks that can be configured in a variety of ways, from walk-in delivery vans to municipal street sweepers...
