FCC Environmental Services and Battle Motors conducted a rigorous operational test of the Battle Motors Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) LNT Curbtender RL equipped with a 240kWh battery pack. This assessment took place within both the urban and rural areas of Hillsborough County, subjecting the vehicle to the demands of a typical workday.
Throughout an 8-hour day, during which temperatures reached a maximum of 96 degrees Fahrenheit, the Battle Motors BEV conducted residential refuse pickups and navigated the narrow streets and alleys in Hillsborough County with notable agility. The ability to remotely monitor the truck’s performance in real-time proved to be significant during the testing phase, as it provided kWh usage data.
RevOS™ captured key performance metrics of the vehicle, including comprehensive route data. This robust data collection and analysis process formed the foundation for the evaluation of Battle Motors BEV’s performance within the urban and rural environments of Hillsborough County.
