Orange EV Launches HUSK-e® Series Terminal Trucks Featuring Enhanced Pulling Power, Speed, Acceleration, and Increased Battery Capacity

12 September 2023

Orange EV, a leading United States-based manufacturer of electric yard trucks, is unveiling the all-new HUSK-e® Series terminal truck at this year’s IANA Intermodal EXPO, taking place from Sept. 11-13 at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. Production of the HUSK-e will commence at Orange EV’s 400,000 sq. ft. global headquarters in Kansas City. This purpose-built truck is designed to meet the demanding requirements of port operations, rail and intermodal sites, and other heavy-duty applications.

"The HUSK-e complements the current e-TRIEVER® offering from Orange EV by providing customers with THE Big Dog. HUSK-e has been designed specifically for port and rail power, torque, and load requirements while continuing to provide the unmatched reliability, drivability, and service that Orange EV has become known for after 8 years of producing and delivering pure electric yard trucks," said Kurt Neutgens, Orange EV President and CTO. "We’re thrilled to have a HUSK-e truck on display in Booth #711 at IANA and to be offering Ride & Drive opportunities during the show, highlighting the HUSK-e pulling a twin pick of loaded containers. Like Orange EV’s e-TRIEVER, the HUSK-e is transforming container handling operations."

The HUSK-e Series offers the necessary power and endurance for fleets while simultaneously enhancing driver safety and comfort. This is achieved through reduced noise and vibration, elimination of diesel exhaust, absence of a transmission, improved visibility, a 50% reduction in stopping distance, and an enhanced in-cab experience.
