Autocar launches electric terminal tractor
The zero-emission E-ACTT aims to provide operators with a much quieter and lower vibration option for spotting trailers and containers at distribution centers, warehouse/trucking yards, industrial operations, and more.
Autocar has built a zero-emission, all-electric version of its Autocar ACTT terminal tractor, dubbed the E-ACTT, which will be available in late 2021.
According to Autocar, the E-ACTT terminal tractor meets regulatory mandates for the vocational truck industry to reduce fuel consumption by 24% by model year 2027 and, in California, to transition diesel trucks to zero-emission trucks.
“The E-ACTT is the same reliable, heavy duty Autocar ACTT but is all electric,” said Mark Aubry, general manager of Terminal Tractor division for Autocar Truck. “Autocar Truck has been a key innovator in the EV truck market dating back to 1923 when we designed our first two EV trucks, Autocar Truck E1 and E2.”
