Chanje, a California startup has received 125 all-electric van orders from rental company, Ryder to be leased or rented in its New York, California and Illinois markets by the end of the year.
The vans are about 26.5 feet long, and have the capacity to carry 6,000 pounds, or up to 580 cubic feet of cargo with a curb weight of nearly 10,000 pounds.
“A 70kWh battery (which is just a tick under the smallest battery used on a Tesla Model S) gives the Chanje vans an estimated range of about 100 miles, though that depends on how much cargo is onboard. The company is working with Chanje and its energy storage partner, eMotorWerks, to install Level 2 charging stations near Ryder facilities in the launch markets.”
