Elec­tric charge

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

CHIP com­pany Frito-Lay has rolled out five elec­tric de­liv­ery trucks, the first step to it set­ting up the largest elec­tric-only truck fleet in the US. The Pep­siCo-owned com­pany plans to in­tro­duce 21 elec­tric trucks with a range of 160km by the end of this year, be­fore putting on an ex­tra 150 elec­tric trucks next year. Frito-Lay says in­tro­duc­ing the elec­tric truck will save hun­dreds of thou­sands of litres of fuel ev­ery year and will pro­duce 75 per cent less emis­sions than equiv­a­lent diesel trucks.
