Range Energy debuts RB-01 electric-powered trailer system – Charged EVs

California-headquartered electric-powered trailer manufacturer Range Energy has introduced its RB-01 next-generation trailer system. 

The new system includes an e-axle, a 200 or 300 kWh battery pack and a smart kingpin.

According to Range, the RB-01 offers a 47% to 67% miles-per-gallon improvement over the previous generation in the series, and the tractor towing the RB-01 achieved 18.1 mpg over the final 281.6 miles between Bakersfield, California, and Las Vegas. The trip included a 2,000-ft net elevation gain and 12,000 ft total climb with ambient temperatures of up to 105˚ F.

“The RB-01 represents a natural evolution in our technology development and continued efficiency and emissions reduction improvements that are critical today for the commercial transportation industry,” said Ali Javidan, CEO and founder of Range.
