Mack Trucks has unveiled a demonstration model of an electrified version of the company’s refuse truck. The Mack LR EV is powered by two 130 kW motors that produce a combined 370 kW of total peak power, 260 kW of continuous power, and 4,051 lb-ft of torque.
The electric Mack LR is equipped with four Li-ion batteries charged through a 150 kW system. All of the vehicle’s accessories are electrically driven through 12, 24 and 600 V circuits.
Mack Senior VP Jonathan Randall said, “Built on our decades of experience in powertrain innovation, the electric LR delivers a powerful yet quiet, zero-emission solution designed to tackle one of the most demanding applications in one of the largest cities in the world.”
