JUN 8, 2018 - 6:52 am
Ryder reserved 500 new Chanje Energy medium-duty electric panel vans, expanding its North American electric commercial truck rental and ChoiceLease fleet. The reservation will be executed as lease agreements for the Chanje electric vehicles (EVs) are finalized. Ryder is the exclusive sales channel and service partner for Chanje and its medium-duty EV fleet for which Ryder is offering truck leasing and preventive maintenance solutions as part of its ChoiceLease and SelectCare fleet maintenance portfolio.
“Ryder continues to see broadening interest in EVs from businesses of various sizes and industries, and especially from those companies in the parcel, final mile or beverage delivery space. Additionally, there’s interest from customers who have daily return to base routes of 40 to 100 miles and in markets with incentives available for electric vehicles,” said Dennis Cooke, president of Global Fleet Management Solutions for Ryder. “Companies continue to identify the potential long-term cost, environmental and efficiency benefits of EVs. We’re proud to expand our relationship with Chanje and expect additional business announcements based on our sales pipeline.”
The Chanje all-electric large delivery style van is equipped to haul up to 6,000 pounds and up to 580 cubic feet of cargo, all with zero vehicle exhaust emissions and 100-mile range on a single charge. Ryder has equipped several maintenance facilities across the San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento and San Jose markets in California, as well as the Chicago and New York markets, to meet the service and charging requirements for commercial EVs.
“We are pleased to partner with Ryder to meet its customers’ evolving performance, cost and sustainability goals and collectively shape the future of the industry,” said Bryan Hansel, founder and CEO of Chanje.
