Ryder, one of the largest US American fleet management companies for utility vehicles, has ordered another 500 electric transporters from the Californian startup Chanje. The startup was founded by former Tesla employees.
The order is a follow-up from a previous fleet order of 125 units of the V8070 electric transporter. The 2017 introduced vehicle is mainly designed for large fleet operators. The transport capacity is set at 2.8 tonnes, and the vehicle features a 160 km range. This is enabled by a 70 kWh battery, which is charged using an integrated 7.2 kW charger. The electric motor features a 148 kW performance allowing for a top speed of up to 130 km/h. In a data sheet, the manufacturer outlines further information surrounding the transporter.
