BYD electric Class 8 rear loader to service Seattle; first in US

BYD delivered Seattle’s first all-electric refuse truck, which is also the first electric Class-8 rear loader in the United States.


The major milestone for heavy duty battery electric trucks features BYD’s 8R Class-8 fitted with New Way Viper Rear Loader refuse body. The first-of-its-kind vehicle is now in operation with Recology in Seattle, WA servicing the city of Seattle with solid waste pickup.

New Way, a family-owned business since 1971, manufactures a complete line of refuse equipment in Scranton, Iowa, including the Viper mid-compaction Rear Loader bodies.
