Mack Trucks recently began production of its second battery-electric vehicle, namely the Mack MD Electric. In addition, the U.S.-based manufacturer delivered the new electric truck to ABF Freight, DC Logistics, Mission Linen and Pronto Freight Ways to begin operations and testing.

Mack Trucks’ MD Electric model

Mack Trucks’ second e-model complements its diesel-powered MD Series sibling, but with zero tailpipe emissions. Now, the e-truck is in full production at Roanoke Valley Operations (RVO), in Roanoke Valley, Virginia, where the diesel-powered MD Series is also assembled. Indeed, the new electric truck is available like its diesel counterpart in Class 6 and Class 7 ratings. The first Mack Truck electric model to reach series production was the Mack LR Electric, back in December 2021.
