The Mack LR Electric model also will be available for a ride-and-drive opportunity outside of the convention center from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, May 10, and Wednesday, May 11.
The Mack LR Electric refuse model is Mack’s first fully electric Class 8 zero tailpipe-emissions vehicle. Manufactured at Mack’s Lehigh Valley Operations in Macungie, Pennsylvania, where all heavy-duty Mack models for North America and export are assembled, the LR Electric offers customers a more sustainable option for refuse and recycling collection.
Mack introduced its next generation Mack LR Electric model in March with improved range and battery capacity. The next generation Mack LR Electric offers 42 percent more energy and a standard 376kWh total battery capacity for improved range between charges. Twin electric motors with 448 continuous horsepower and a 4,051 lb.-ft. of peak torque output from zero RPM power the vehicle.
A copper-colored Bulldog sits prominently on the cab signifying the all-electric drivetrain. Four NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide) lithium-ion batteries, charged through a 150 kW, SAE J1772-compliant charging system, propels the vehicle and provides power for all onboard accessories through 12V, 24V and 600V circuits. The two-stage regenerative braking system helps recapture energy from the hundreds of stops the vehicle makes each day with an increasing load.
The Mack TerraPro cabover model is a diesel option that can withstand the rigorous demands of a refuse application. The TerraPro is available with the Mack MP7 and MP®8 engine, as well as the Mack mDRIVE™ automated manual transmission. Now standard with Mack GuardDog® Connect, Mack’s integrated telematics solution, the TerraPro model can be configured for many applications, such as refuse, dump, mixer or concrete pump.
