A Renewable Future for Australian Utes and Utilities

first electric ute trial

Transgrid, a network giant in Australia, has launched a trial of the first dual-cab electric ute in the country. The company received its first 2023 LDV eT60 electric ute and is currently conducting in-depth field testing to see if the vehicle meets operational requirements. The 130kW/310Nm electric motor and 88.5kWh battery pack of the electric ute is expected to provide operational savings for Transgrid, including around a 50% reduction in fuel costs. Moreover, the transition to electric vehicles could reduce Transgrid’s impact on the environment, a part of its commitment to reach net zero by 2040.
