Mac will take the learnings from this evaluation to further refine the lr electric before production begins next year, as with light duty, cars and trucks. There are many benefits to going electric battery powered rubbish. Haulers should be much quieter than existing diesel models perfect for reducing noise. In bustling cities like new york, san francisco or hay springs, nebraska, hey, hey, hey aside from cutting unwanted racket, the lr electric will also be much cleaner emitting no noxious plumes of exhaust, though it's still probably gon na stink, because well i mean it's it's, hauling garbage Hauling this mammoth trash truck around is a duet of motors combined. They deliver 536 horsepower, not too shabby, but as always with evs it's, the torque that counts, and this one is crazier than savory pudding. The lr electric is ready to smoke its tires with 4051 pound feet at 0, rpm that twisty goodness gets routed through a two speed transmission to the rear axles. Yes, axel's, plural, four, lithium, nickel, manganese, cobalt oxide batteries store the energy needed to produce all that torque. Now no word on this litter lorry's driving range, but those electron reservoirs are juiced by a 150 kilowatt charging system that conforms to the sae j1772 standard. The lr electric undergoing testing is fitted with a heil command, sst body, though other flavors will be offered. Actually flavors is probably a bad word to use when talking about garbage, i mean it's in poor taste. I'M.
Sorry, that's bad anyway. The truck is also adorned with a little copper colored bulldog, hinting at the electric powertrain. Underneath look at that little pup. I get it garbage. Trucks are not something we typically cover here on roadshow and really there's, nothing about them for most drivers to get excited about until they stop running and trash piles up and then suddenly everyone becomes a garbage truck enthusiast right anyway. I think mack's new lr electric is a super smart idea with zero tailpipe emissions and greatly reduced noise it's going to make life just a little bit more pleasant on trash day plus. It also demonstrates how electric drive trains can really be scaled up for commercial applications. The lr electric will be assembled in mukungi pennsylvania, it's, a funny sounding town, where other mac class 8 trucks are built. Now the manufacturer will start taking orders in the fourth quarter of this year, though, production is expected to begin officially in 2021. If you finished watching this video chances, are you like trucks and, of course, if you liked what you saw here, make sure you check out my other recent video, which is all about pickups and suvs and how they got so popular.
