ELECTRIC DELIVERY TRUCK * USA: By chinese maker BYD
* California - BYD partners with San Francisco Goodwill for electric delivery truck pilot
The San Francisco chapter of Goodwill will test the viability of electric delivery trucks by deploying 11 BYD trucks in San Francisco and nearby Redwood City and Burlingame. SF Goodwill will operate 10 Class 6 delivery trucks and one Class 8 refuse truck for 24 months, while collecting and analyzing data on vehicle performance, maintenance and emission reductions. The project will provide Goodwill with a model to electrify its truck fleet that can then be replicated at any of its 165 national Goodwill regions... BYD estimates that the 11 trucks, which were assembled at its Lancaster, California facility, will result in the reduction of over 1,355 tons of greenhouse gas emissions and nearly 1.2 tons of criteria and particulate matter emissions over their lifetimes...
