Charged EVs | Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle delivered to Coastal Waste & Recycling

US truck maker Mack Trucks, a subsidiary of Volvo, has delivered a Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle to Florida-based Coastal Waste & Recycling. 

Nextran Truck Centers will provide service and support. Coastal Waste & Recycling is also piloting Volvo Construction Equipment’s CE EC230 Electric 23-ton excavator.

The Mack LR Electric features two-stage regenerative braking and four nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) lithium-ion batteries with 376 kWh total capacity. Twin electric motors produce 448 continuous horsepower and 4,051 lb-ft of peak torque output.

Mack and Coastal have worked together in developing optimal routing to ensure that the vehicle can complete a full day’s work. It will operate in residential and specialized commercial applications.

“As the first private hauler in Florida to invest in electric, we look forward to harnessing the strength of this strategic move to further elevate innovation in our operations,” said Coastal CEO Brendon Pantano.
