Peterbilt Model 220EV Eligible For CARB Voucher
By Mike Brezonick15 September 2020
Peterbilt Motors Co. said it is excited to announce the 2020 Peterbilt Model 220EV is now eligible for the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) program by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
All Peterbilt Model 220EVs sold to customers in California are eligible for a $95,000 HVIP voucher. To receive a voucher, vehicle purchasers and participating dealers must meet all applicable project requirements identified in the HVIP Implementation Manual.
“Having our Model 220EV eligible for a HVIP voucher should dramatically help reduce purchasing costs for California-based companies looking to add Peterbilt medium duty EVs to their fleet,” said Jason Skoog Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president. “Combined with our recently announced PacLease introductory offer, it’s a great time for California customers to order a Model 220EV.
The Model 220EV is Peterbilt’s first electric configuration for medium-duty applications and provides customers a zero emissions 4×2 Class 6 or 7 vehicle. With a range of up to 200 miles on a full charge, the Model 220EV is driven by Dana’s medium- and heavy-duty Sumo MD and Sumo HD electric motors that deliver 154 kW (207 hp) or 259 kW (347 hp) continuous power ratings, respectively.
Dana is providing complete vehicle integration, including the electrified power cradle, battery management system and vehicle controls. Dana is also providing its SPL 100 driveshafts and 21060 Series drive axles.
The electric motors are powered by thermally controlled, 618 V lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries that offer energy storage of 141 kWh (100 mile range) or 282 kWh (200 mile range).
When using the vehicle’s dc fast-charging system, the battery packs can be recharged in one to two hours, making the Model 220EV ideal for local pickup and delivery, as well as short regional haul operations, the company said.
The Model 220EV is available for customer orders with deliveries expected to start by the end of 2020.
