Peterbilt shows off all-electric medium-duty Model 220EV

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Peterbilt Motors Co. pulled the curtain off of its all-electric medium duty Model 220EV. The zero emission 220EV is powered by two TransPower battery packs with a total of 148 kWh and a Meritor Blue Horizon two speed drive eAxle. It features a range of 100 miles and a recharge time of one hour when using a DC fast charging system, making it an ideal option for local pick-up and delivery operations, Peterbilt stated.

“Adding the medium-duty platform to our electric truck line-up was a natural evolution of our development plan. We will now have trucks in the three applications where electric powertrains may have a return on investment for our customers.” said Peterbilt General Manager Jason Skoog. “Today, we have Model 520EVs and Model 579EVs on the road with customers, experiencing real-world environments and performing well. In addition to the customer field trials, Peterbilt is engaged in validation testing at the PACCAR Technical Center (PTC) in Mount Vernon, Washington. Data collected during customer trials and testing at PTC will be used to ensure that Peterbilt EVs meet the same rigorous standards as our current trucks.”
