VTRL Energizes 47 New High-Powered Charging Stations in Southern California

Velocity Truck Rental & Leasing (VTRL), a division of Velocity Vehicle Group, energized 47 high-powered charging stations at four strategic dealer locations across Southern California. Scheduled to be fully operational in May 2024, the high-powered chargers have been installed at VTRL facilities in Rancho Dominguez (17), Fontana (14), the City of Industry (14) and San Diego (2). This significant investment is part of VTRL’s initiative to lead the transition to sustainable freight solutions by providing efficient and reliable charging options for commercial medium- and heavy-duty electric trucks.

The newly installed infrastructure comprises 45 120 kW Detroit e-Fill and two ChargePoint chargers, all designed to cater to the specific needs of medium and heavy-duty battery electric trucks. Detroit e-Fill commercial-grade chargers are renowned for their reliability in and efficient performance, enabling trucks such as the Class 8 Freightliner eCascadia, Class 6 and 7 Freightliner eM2 and RIZON Class 4 to 5 battery-electric cabover trucks to achieve an 80% state of charge in just 90 minutes or less.

“At Velocity, we are not just reacting to the shift towards electric mobility; we are at the forefront with our customers and actively shaping it,” David Deon, president of VTRL, said. “By integrating high-powered, commercial-grade charging solutions along key transit corridors, we are ensuring that our customers have the support they need today. This charging infrastructure investment is a testament to our commitment to helping our customers transition smoothly to electromobility solutions and to prepare for compliance with the Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) regulations.”

“Adapting the Velocity Vehicle Group’s dealer model to meet the evolving needs of today’s customers is paramount,” Deon said. “This latest development not only furthers a sustainable future in transportation but also strengthens our network’s reliability and our commitment to customer service.”
