Orange EV Unveils the e-TRIEVER™, the 3rd Generation of its Industry-Leading Electric Yard Trucks

Delivering all-electric, turnkey solutions, Orange EV has more than 400 heavy-duty electric yard trucks operating across the United States

KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Orange EV, the manufacturer with the most zero-emission trucks in operation in the United States, today announced the new e-TRIEVER™ brand for its Model Year 2022 all-electric terminal trucks. The e-TRIEVER builds upon the T-Series’ exceptional foundation while continuing Orange EV’s commitment to innovation and delivering trucks that meet the demanding needs of heavy-duty, goods movement operations.

Orange EV commercially deployed its first all-electric yard truck in 2015. Five million miles, 1.5 million hours, and 400 trucks later, Orange EV is recognized as the leading manufacturer of Class 8 electric truck solutions.

The e-TRIEVER extends this excellence, bringing all the benefits fleets depend upon – including zero tailpipe emissions – while adding next-generation technology.

The e-TRIEVER features DTS™ (Digital Truck Systems) designed to integrate with autonomous control systems along with advanced digital cab architecture, improved sensing, remote diagnostic capabilities, and an optional IntelliBoom™ package that captures 5th wheel load weight, boom lift cycles, and kingpin presence and retention data.  The basic specifications for the Model Year 2022 4×2 e-TRIEVER remain unchanged from the prior Model Year 2021 4×2 T-Series:

We are delivering on that vision," said Kurt Neutgens, Orange EV President and CTO. "Drawing upon our ten-year heritage of electric truck innovation, the e-TRIEVER continues this excellence, and we believe the new name conveys Orange EV’s staunch commitment to our customers – the e-TRIEVER is loyal, hardworking, and delivers every time."
