PacLease puts its first leased electric Peterbilts into service

Truck leasing and rental company PacLease recently provided its first electric trucks, two Peterbilt Model 579 EV Day Cabs, to Dallas-area trucking company Truck King, which will use them for local line-haul operations of approximately 100 miles round-trip.

To meet growing demand for electrics, the company says it has invested in charging infrastructure, certified technicians, and Kenworth and Peterbilt medium- and heavy-duty electric truck models at its US-based PACCAR Leasing stores. 

“The truck is only part of the equation,” said PACCAR Leasing President Ken Roemer. “Grants, infrastructure, chargers and qualified/trained support at our service facility are all part of PacLease’s investment in this new technology.”

Roemer said that, in addition to building charging stations at some of its locations, PacLease is “actively working with local utility companies to come up with the right power plan,” and is helping customers secure grants to offset the higher cost of electric trucks.
