Anheuser-Busch to deploy 21 BYD electric trucks

Anheuser-Busch plans to add 21 BYD electric trucks to its California fleet. The second-generation 8TT Class 8 electric trucks will be deployed at Anheuser-Busch facilities in Sylmar, Riverside, Pomona and Carson.

The non-profit Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE) will lead project oversight, development, management, and reporting through a grant from the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

The project will entail equipment testing, a one-year demonstration period, data collection, and reporting. The trucks are scheduled to begin operation near the end of 2019 and be up and running by 2021. Anheuser-Busch expects them to eliminate 910 metric tons of CO2 emissions per year.

Richard Corey, Executive Officer at CARB, said, “Anheuser-Busch is providing a real-world demonstration of the future for moving goods and products throughout California. I congratulate all the companies partnering on this impressive effort for embracing zero-emission trucks.”
