“The EVS26 event, where new technologies promoting electric transportation are on display, offers what we believe to be an excellent opportunity to exhibit our industry-leading lithium battery powered 30 ton capacity Class 8 tractor to an international audience,” said Balwinder Samra, Chief Executive Officer of Balqon Corporation. “High fuel costs favor higher-efficiency electric vehicle solutions in high idling short-haul applications at locations such as ports, airports and urban centers where both smog and congestion contribute to health risks to local communities. The MX30, a heavy-duty electric tractor, is ideal for short-haul container drayage applications at these locations. For example, we believe that the MX30 is an ideal solution for use at ports where air pollution is severe and distances travelled between marine terminals and local rail yards are less than five miles per trip,” he added.

The MX30 to be displayed at the EVS26 Expo is equipped with Balqon’s proprietary drive system that is connected to a six speed automatic transmission assembled on a Freightliner truck chassis. Equipped with standard 600 Volt lithium batteries, the MX30 has the energy to travel up to 150 miles under unloaded conditions on a single charge. The MX30 also features fast charging, which allows the vehicle to be charged in less than three hours, thereby increasing the daily range of the vehicle when properly charged.
