Peterbilt Motors Company and PACCAR Leasing Company (PacLease) have partnered to deliver two 579EV Day Cab models to King Truck, a Dallas-area trucking company, for use in local trucking operations.
Truck King operates 65 trucks in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area that handle parts used by local manufacturing businesses.
King Truck 579EV models will be used for daily delivery routes between the PACCAR Dynacraft facility in McKinney and the Petribilt manufacturing plant in Denton.
This is the best route to electrification success due to its operation in urban environments and the better range required. Your drivers will also appreciate the 579EV model’s smooth acceleration, quiet operation and superior comfort.
“We are committed to customer outcomes and productivity and are pleased that Truck King has chosen to partner with Peterbilt as their electrical supplier.
Our approach and integrated capability as a company with industry-leading EV services, operations and support is unique,” said Jason Skoog, PACCAR president and general manager of Peterbilt.
