Coca-Cola Refreshments, the largest bottler of Coca-Cola products, has purchased four Smith Newton all-electric trucks from Smith Electric Vehicles.
The Atlanta-based company uses Newtons in New York and in Washington, D.C. The vehicles are deployed on urban delivery routes. Coca-Cola Refreshments was one of Smith Electric’s launch partners in North America.
“Coca-Cola Refreshments is demonstrating its commitment to environmental sustainability and green fleet vehicle technologies that will drive the future of the automotive industry.”
Bryan Hansel, CEO & President, Smith Electric Vehicles
The Newton all-electric truck delivers a top speed of 55 mph (88km/h), offers a range of 50 to 150 miles (65-190km) on a single charge and a payload of over 16,000 pounds (7,250kg). It operates at peak effectiveness in urban applications that demand heavy ‘stop-and-go’ driving. A single overnight charge provides more than enough range for most urban delivery routes. Smith vehicles feature the latest in Lithium-ion battery cell technology, power management and direct drive trains.
