Terberg Tractors Malaysia Sdn Bhd (TTM), the joint venture between Royal Terberg Group and Sime Darby Industrial, looks to expand its reach in Asia Pacific with the launch of Malaysia’s first fully battery-powered electric terminal tractor, model YT200EV.
The YT200EV terminal tractor which is manufactured locally at the manufacturing and assembly facility in Pasir Gudang, Johor, will be made available for distribution in December 2022.
In addition to reducing carbon emissions, the YT200EV terminal tractor will also be able to reduce maintenance costs compared to tractors running on diesel or other fossil fuels.
The YT200EV terminal tractor features 350 kWh Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) batteries that provide continuous operation up to 10 hours (in container port operation) and can be fully charged within an hour. The vehicle also features a 240 kW asynchronous water-cooled motor drive, capable of sufficient torque to carry up to 90 tonnes payload, making it more efficient and cost effective compared with diesel tractors.
