Battle Motors (formerly Crane Carrier Company (CCC)) is now selling its fully electric refuse truck, the Battle LNT EV, in Southern California through Velocity Truck Centers.

The Battle Motors LNT EV features an 82-inch cab, a customizable wheelbase, multimode regenerative braking, a direct drive transmission, peak power of 500 hp, continuous power of 310 hp, and a peak output torque of 1,700+ lbs. per foot. Trucks may be ordered at Velocity Truck Centers and other dealers.

Battle Motors acquired CCC in early 2021 to add an electric vehicle offering to CCC’s diesel and compressed natural gas (CNG) offerings.

Along with electrification, Battle Motors also brings one of the first fully digital instrument clusters and its Revolution OS to the refuse market.

Paul Marsolan, chief software officer of Battle Motors, explained that this operating system gives the trucks “an onboard computer system to pass actionable performance, parts, and service data to fleet managers, service dealers, and drivers via [the] onboard digital instrument cluster and hosted server environment.”
