Terex unveils all-electric utility vehicle to curb carbon emissions


Watertown-based Terex Utilities has introduced the first all-electric bucket truck manufactured in the US

Initially, the trucks will be used by nine Terex customers, including utility company Xcel Energy, which does business in eight Midwestern and Western states, including South Dakota, Minnesota and North Dakota, according to a news release from Terex.

The electric trucks are part of an industry effort to curb carbon emissions.

Although there is some competition in the industry as manufacturers attempt to meet the rising demand for electric vehicles, Terex claims to have an advantage in diversity.
