Penske Truck Leasing has opened what it considers to be the “first DC fast charging stations in the U.S. designed specifically for heavy-duty commercial electric vehicles”. The first 14 rapid chargers stand at four of Penske’s facilities in Southern California.

The company’s near term plan includes adding at least six more charging stations, bringing the total number of chargers in the USA to 20. These will then charge electric trucks, such as Daimler’s Freightliners. Penske Trucks is one of Daimler’s early partners for trials with the new EVs in the US reportedly.

The corresponding charging stations will be installed at Penske Truck Leasing facilities in San Diego, Chino, Anaheim and La Mirada, allowing for charging between 50 and 150 kW. Rollout of charging infrastructure for electric utility vehicles will not stop there however, as Andrew Cullen, senior vice president of fuels and facilities at Penske Truck Leasing, explains: “We’ll continue to add new locations and charging infrastructure to support our customers as our electric fleet continues to grow and the demand for commercial electric vehicles gains momentum.”
