Terraline to Carry Out Prototype Class 8 Truck Tests in Q1

November 21, 2023

A prototype of a battery-electric Class 8 truck with an expected range of 500 miles is set to begin its first pilot tests in Florida in the first quarter of 2024, according to vehicle developer Terraline Inc.

Fremont, Calif.-based Terraline is putting the first prototype of its EV 500 through its paces with Jacksonville, Fla.-based logistics, fuel and shipping company Crowley, which will test the truck between Florida facilities in Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville and Miami. After the Crowley test, pilot runs with other partners will take place, Terraline founder and CEO Graham Doorley told Transport Topics. Pilot testing with these potential customers is expected to take two weeks to as long as a month, and Terraline is planning four or five pilot trials before it begins focusing on production.
