Penske opens high speed electric vehicle chargers

American commercial vehicle company, Penske Truck Leasing, has rolled out 14 high-speed chargers in Southern California.

Located at Penske facilities in San Diego, Chino, Anaheim and La Mirada, the chargers are reportedly the first DC fast charging stations in the US designed specifically for heavy-duty commercial electric vehicles.

Penske has announced plans to add another six soon.

President and CEO of Penske Truck Leasing, Brian Hard, said the company was committed to being at the forefront of commercial vehicle electrification.

“We are investing to ensure our customers have access to the right vehicles, technology, charging infrastructure and information to help shape the future of mobility in our industry,” he said.

Each charger uses 50 kW to 150 kW chargers, which allows for American Class 8 trucks to become fully charged in less than half a shift.

“We are proud to provide our customers with the ability to quickly and conveniently charge their electric truck fleets at these locations,” said Andrew Cullen, senior vice-president of fuels and facilities at Penske Truck Leasing.

“We’ll continue to add new locations and charging infrastructure to support our customers as our electric fleet continues to grow and the demand for commercial electric vehicles gains momentum.”
