ROUSH CleanTech, a provider of alternative fuel and electric propulsion technology for fleet vehicles, has inked a deal with Penske Truck Leasing to provide battery-electric vehicles based on the Ford F-650 for deployment across Southern California.
The new EVs, which were built to Penske’s specifications, have a maximum speed of 65 mph and a 100-mile range. The demo units were funded in part by the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
“Penske has been expanding its battery-electric fleet for the past several years,” said Penske Senior VP Paul Rosa. “We are working with our customers to evaluate ROUSH CleanTech-powered BEVs across various real-world applications.”
“Over the past decade, ROUSH CleanTech has put more than 37,000 vehicles on North American roads,” said Todd Mouw, President of ROUSH CleanTech. “We bring that experience and expertise to the battery-electric vehicle market.”
Production is to begin in summer 2021.
