TICO launches next-gen Pro-Spotter electric terminal tractor – Charged EVs

Terminal tractor and trailer maker TICO Manufacturing, based in South Carolina, has introduced the next generation of its Pro-Spotter electric terminal tractor, which features additional battery and driveline options from a number of suppliers.

The new model builds on TICO’s first-generation electric terminal tractor launched in 2023 from its partnership with Volvo Penta. It offers scalable energy levels with a top end of 312 kWh, and 175 kWh maximum fast charge or inductive charging adaptability. It has a top-end GCWR of 160,000 lbs and 61,000 lb⋅ft of wheel end torque.

As a BABA-compliant vehicle, it qualifies for grant funding programs, including the Clean Ports Program.

Full production is slated to commence in 2025.

“It was clear that the market demanded more flexibility in electric terminal tractors. End users should not have to change their entire operations to meet sustainability initiatives and requirements. We set out to tailor our next-generation terminal tractor to meet each set of customer requirements,” said Mallery Pindar, TICO’s Senior Director of Sales and Marketing. “This level of onboard energy finally conquers the challenge that port operators have of runtime when addressing demanding port applications and uses.”
