Penske Truck Leasing announced that it has opened commercial heavy-duty electric vehicle charging stations with 14 high-speed chargers at four of its existing facilities in Southern California. The company says its near-term plan includes adding at least six more chargers to bring the total number to 20. Penske says it believes these are the first DC fast-charging stations in the U.S. designed specifically for heavy-duty commercial electric vehicles.
“We’re committed to being at the forefront of commercial vehicle electrification,” said Brian Hard, President and CEO of Penske Truck Leasing. “We are investing to ensure our customers have access to the right vehicles, technology, charging infrastructure, and information to help shape the future of mobility in our industry.”
