Sunbelt Rentals Adds EV Trucks

Sunbelt Rentals, an equipment rental company, announced the expansion of its electric on-road fleet with the order of 700 Ford F-150 Lightning trucks. 

The purchase of the trucks will contribute to the goal Sunbelt Rentals set to reduce GHG emission intensity by 35% by 2030.

“This investment highlights our strong commitment to reduce our GHG emissions through the adoption of new on-road fleet technology,” said Al Halvorsen, vice president of ESG at Sunbelt Rentals in a statement. “Starting the conversion of our truck fleet to electric alternatives, like the Ford Lightning, is critical to our ability to reach our ambitious GHG reduction goals and still continue to serve our customers with availability, reliability and ease.”

Sunbelt Rentals will also purchase and install Level 2 wall-mount chargers at employees’ homes for more efficient charging. 

The company is investing in new low- and zero-carbon technologies for both its on-road fleet and its stable of rental equipment.
