Fleets can go electric without ever hitting the highway. 

Electric terminal tractors have been around in one form or another for many years, and while they won't see the kind of mileage even low-mile fleets put on units, they drag around a respectable amount of weight. 

In this week's 10-44, Jason and Matt catch up with Kurt Neutgens, co-founder, president and chief technology officer of Orange EV, who talked about the development and capabilities of the company’s electric terminal tractors and what kind of lessons learned from electric yard trucks could be applied to on-highway models.
