Mack Trucks will have three battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) covering Class 6 and Class 8 on display in its booth at Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo 2024, highlighting its focus on advanced technologies and total ecosystem support of the customer. Mack executives also will be featured as experts on several panels during the show, May 20-23, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We are proud that Mack is now producing and delivering the Mack® MD Electric and Mack LR Electric vehicles to its customers,” said Jonathan Randall, president of Mack Trucks North America. “We have worked diligently to ensure that we are making it as easy as possible for customers to adopt e-mobility into their fleets through our total ecosystem of support, such as financing, infrastructure development, funding opportunities, service and support.”

The Mack MD Electric complements its diesel-powered MD Series sibling, but with zero tailpipe emissions to support the company’s and customers’ long-term sustainability goals. The Mack MD Electric is in full production at Roanoke Valley Operations (RVO), in Roanoke Valley, Virginia, where the diesel-powered MD Series is also assembled.

The Mack MD Electric is available like its diesel counterpart in Class 6 and Class 7 ratings. The Class 6 model has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 25,995 pounds, and the Class 7 model has a GVWR of 33,000 pounds. Both models are exempt from the 12% Federal Excise Tax (FET).

Available in 4×2 configurations, the Mack MD7 is ideal for refuse collection in tight or weight-restricted areas and other applications. The MD model also offers a clear back of cab above the frame rail to make it easier for body builder adaptations. 

The MD Electric is the second electric vehicle introduced by Mack Trucks to the industry. The first was the Mack LR Electric, which went into production in December 2021.

The next generation Class 8 Mack LR Electric refuse model offers a standard 376 kWh total battery capacity for 42% more energy and increased range between vehicle charges. Twin electric motors produce 448 continuous horsepower and 4,051 lb.-ft. of peak torque output from zero RPM.

Four NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide) lithium-ion batteries, charged through a 150 kW, SAE J1772-compliant charging system, power the vehicle and 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.
