BYD North America just unveiled two next-generation battery-electric heavy-duty trucks. The ‘Gen3 8TT’ and ‘6F’. The range of 200 miles in extended range versions also makes the trucks suitable for mid-range haulage.

The electric truck cabs were designed by Wolfgang Josef Egger who is a former Audi chief designer. The Byd electric Truck have up to 185kW CCS1 charging capability.

According to BYD, the Gen 3 8TT electric truck is a versatile vehicle, and is “capable of performing drayage, regional haul, and distribution work”. The 6F electric truck is a bit larger and can perform regional haul and distribution work. It can also be equipped with a body for refuse collection.
