Green Fleet Roundup: Smith Electric Vehicles, Volvo, Linde, ChargePoint

Smith Electric Vehicles has produced more than 700 all-electric Edison and Newton trucks (pictured), which have cumulatively generated more than 5 million miles on the road, offsetting an estimated 700,000 gallons of fuel and eliminating more than 10,000 short tons of greenhouse gases, the company says. Smith Electric fleet customers can save about 70 percent annually on fuel and maintenance during the life of the vehicle, the company says.

Volvo Group has launched an electric bus-service initiative, called ElectriCity, in Gothenburg, Sweden. Beginning in 2015, the electric buses will run between Johanneberg Science Park adjacent to Chalmers and Lindholmen Science Park in Hisingen.

Linde North America is purchasing 20 liquefied natural gas-fueled trucks. The trucks, expected to be deployed later this year, will be integrated into Linde’s fleet of more than 700 trucks carrying cryogenic gases to customers throughout North America.

ChargePoint has completed its ChargePoint America Program with more than 4,600 shipments and installations of its home, public and commercial charging ports for electric vehicles. The program provides data to the US Energy Department through Idaho National Laboratory. The data, in turn, are publicly reported to help researchers, municipal planners, and other stakeholders learn more about where EVs are charged, when and how much energy is used.
