Just FYI - the below company sells EV trucks that can replace our F-450s. They are ready and selling in the US.

Hi Catherine,

Great talking with you today. Per discussion, the smallest truck we currently offer in the US is the BYD 6R/6F, please see attached image. This truck has a safe working range of 150+ miles, before needing to recharge. We can put various bodies on this chassis (refuse, flatbed, stakebed, box truck, etc.). With a refuse body, safe working range is ~80 miles with hydraulic body operating.

With Electric, operating costs are reduced approximately 80% compared to diesel, based on maintenance and fuel reduction. So if a diesel fleet costs $1m a year to operate (maintenance and fuel), by switching to electric you could save ~$800k per year.

Please let me know if you have any questions, I will be available to answer any questions you have during your meeting.

Thanks,
John
