A boost for light-duty trucks

Smith Electric Vehicles and Proton Power Systems have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop long-range electric service trucks.

The partnership will allow Smith Electric to install Proton Power’s fuel cell range extenders into its light-duty range of electric vans and trucks. The change is estimated to increase a Smith Electric truck’s average range between charges from its current 160 km (100 miles) to up to 300 km (186 miles) with the fuel cell extender.
