Mack Truck has announced the sale of two electric refuse vehicles this week, both of which were assembled at its Lehigh Valley operations.
Mack recently announced a target of 35 percent of its global sales will be fully electric by 2030, which the Mack LR Electric will help fulfill.
Miami-Dade County executives have introduced the Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle it purchased to help the County improve resiliency and sustainability. The Mack LR Electric is Miami-Dade’s first heavy-duty electric vehicle purchase for its fleet.
The Mack LR Electric offers zero tailpipe emissions, improved sustainability and a quieter vehicle for refuse collection.
The Town of Cary, North Carolina, also recently ordered a Mack LR Electric Class 8 refuse vehicle.
Mack said the truck will provide the community with reduced emissions, maintenance and fuel costs and is expected to be in full operation in the fall of 2023.
This order makes Cary the first municipality in North Carolina to order a Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle.
“Mack congratulates the Town of Cary on their pursuit of sustainable operations and is proud that they have chosen to purchase and deploy a Mack LR Electric to help achieve their goals,” said Jonathan Randall, Mack Trucks senior vice president of sales and commercial operations. “We look forward to continuing our commitment to developing sustainable transportation solutions with Cary and our other customers, as well as helping them fulfill their environmental goals.”
