BYD rolls out first electric collection trucks in New Jersey
Hudson County Motors and BYD will provide the first all-electric refuse trucks on the US East Coast capable of working an entire route. Five all-electric rear loader collection trucks will go to work on normal daily collection routes, providing regular zero-emission collection services for Jersey City, NJ.
"Jersey City will be a model for what is now possible with zero-emission refuse trucks," says John Gerra, Sr. Director of Business Development with BYD Motors. "We look forward to helping provide clean streets and clean air for the residents of Jersey City."
The project is being supported by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Sanitation Equipment Corp. of Totawa, New Jersey. Hudson County Motors is BYD's fully authorized truck dealer for Northern NJ, and says it is well positioned to support the state's electric refuse truck market. The company is working in partnership with Climate Change Mitigation Technologies LLC (CCMT), a pioneer in medium- and heavy-duty commercial fleet truck electrification projects. CCMT is providing project management services for all of Hudson County Motors' electric truck programs.
BYD is a commercial electric truck specialist with deployments in the United States, and one of the world's largest manufacturers of electric vehicles and battery-electric trucks, with more than 12,000 electric trucks in service around the world.
