Why Electric Trucks are Better

Why Electric Trucks are Better

Electric trucks provide reduction in greenhouse gas emissions which is especially beneficial in an urban setting. In fact, electric trucks have been shown to cut greenhouse gas emissions by a third or more over diesel trucks.

Other Benefits Electric Trucks Offer

Less Noise.

While this seems obvious, why is this a benefit? Lack of noise means they can operate at times when a diesel truck cannot. This can provide a significant benefit to businesses operating in congested urban areas with evening noise restrictions.

Regenerative Braking

An electric truck has a highly efficient drivetrain and offers energy recovery during braking. When measured together, the regenerative braking and super-efficient drivetrain can lead to about five times higher efficiency for an electric truck.

Alternate Energy Sources

If you drive a diesel truck, there is only one way to fuel your truck. Diesel. If you invest in an electric truck, you have more options. You can charge your electric battery with standard plugin, paid-for electricity OR you can invest in solar for your company which would significantly drive down the cost of operations for your fleet.

Keep Your Credit Line Open – Lease Your Commercial Trucks

Keep Your Credit Line Open – Lease Your Commercial Trucks

Commercial Truck Leasing

Commercial vehicles can be leased like you would lease a personal vehicle. The terms are similar to a traditional purchase with a contract with a time limit, set monthly payments, but a lease differs in that you have the option to buy or return the vehicle when the lease term expires.

The Advantages

Leasing your company’s commercial trucks offers several advantages to your business. The first of these is cost. In general, leasing is cheaper than traditional pay to own commercial loans. Many commercial leases also have a buy option with a set buyout price at the end of the lease term. Secondly, a commercial lease has a lower upfront cost and a lower down payment. Third, with a lease you can trade in the vehicle at the end of the lease term getting a newer truck, this means you always have the newest and best equipment available. Fourth, many leases include other perks for commercial truck loans including regular maintenance without an out of pocket expense. Finally, a commercial truck lease can be easier to qualify for than other automotive loans which can be useful if your credit score is not perfect or your business just opened.

Things to Keep in Mind

Leasing a vehicle keeps more of your capital on hand for other business needs. Having available capital means your business can respond quickly to opportunities.


Commercial truck leasing is a flexible way to provide for your company’s vehicle needs. The ability to trade-in or buy keeps your options open and the easier loan application helps removes the barrier to entry for getting the equipment your business needs.
