Sunbelt Adds 700 Electric Trucks to Fleet

April 22, 2022 Sunbelt Adds 700 Electric Trucks to Fleet

Sunbelt Rentals announced plans to expand its electric on-road fleet with the order of 700 Ford F-150 Lightning trucks

The electric vehicles are set to be delivered to Sunbelt later this year. In addition, the company will purchase and install Level 2 wall-mount chargers at employees’ homes for more efficient charging options. The acquisitions assist Sunbelt with working toward the company’s previously stated goal of reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emission intensity by 35% by 2030.

“This investment highlights our strong commitment to reduce our GHG emissions through the adoption of new on-road fleet technology,” said Al Halvorsen, Sunbelt vice president of ESG. “Starting the conversion of our truck fleet to electric alternatives, like the Ford Lightning, is critical to our ability to reach our ambitious GHG reduction goals and still continue to serve our customers with availability, reliability, and ease.”
