Today Lonestar Specialty Vehicles announced it has partnered with In-Charge Energy, an energy solutions company based in Los Angeles, California, to provide customers Turnkey Energy and Charging solutions for fleet conversion to electric vehicles.
In 2019, Lonestar SV embarked on a mission to provide a solution to internal combustion terminal tractors. Observing the amount of downtime customers were encountering with Tier 4 emissions equipment, Lonestar developed the SV Reman line of electric terminal tractors. The first electric T22 was deployed on November 25, 2019 and continues to be an industry leader in electric terminal tractors.
Lonestar Specialty Vehicles will be the first Terminal Tractor OEM to offer end-to-end turn-key solutions that include EV Charging Infrastructure as a service.
“When electrifying a fleet, our customers have new operational and budgetary considerations to make and that often requires an innovative solution. It is critical that we [Lonestar SV] provide solutions for any obstacle our customers might face in their sustainability goals. Our mission is to provide zero-emission solutions that are hassle-free value-adds every time for our customers. Our partnership with In-Charge Energy allows us to provide a turn-key solution and ultimately make the transition to Zero Emissions seamless for fleets,” said Blake Yazel, General Manager of Lonestar Specialty Vehicles.
Cameron Funk, CEO of InCharge Energy says, “This partnership will ensure that Lonestar Specialty Vehicle can continue to build the best products and have our support with all of the necessary Charging and Energy services necessary for a successful implementation.”
