The Marine Corps has purchased two all-electric trucks as part of its effort to become more sustainable, according to a press release.
The Smith Electric medium trucks have a top speed of 55 MPH and can go as far as 120 miles on a single charge. The trucks can also carry up to 16,000 pounds.
The trucks will be delivered to Camp Pendleton, Calif., by February, 2011.
This is all part of an effort to reduce its energy use 30 percent by 2015 and increase its reliance on renewable electrical energy to 25 percent by 2025.
