On January 20th, 2022 Chas Mease, EV Fleet Sales for Lonestar Specialty Vehicles was the featured speaker for the Virginia Clean Cities Technology Happy Hour.
Lonestar Specialty Vehicles, with 24 full-service dealerships across the country, manufactures turnkey electric vehicle solutions for the commercial vehicle market. Lonestar’s terminal tractors (also known as shunt trucks, spotter trucks, yard trucks, yard shifters, yard dogs, yard goats, yard horses, yard birds, yard jockeys, hostlers, or mules) improve productivity, reduce maintenance, and increase uptime!
As Chas explained, these electric terminal tractors have zero tailpipe emissions, making them a great solution for ports and distribution centers dealing with increasingly strict emissions requirements. Additionally, this equipment with high idle and up-times can also experience a lot of wear on their engines. Since electric offerings use batteries in place of an engine, electric terminal tractors experience less wear and less maintenance than their diesel counterparts, which can save valuable time and money.
To listen to the discussion and learn more about Lonestar SV’s offerings, you can watch the video here or on our YouTube channel.
