The new Kenworth K270E Class 6 and K370E Class 7 battery-electric vehicles qualify for a $95,000 voucher incentive to qualifying California purchasers from the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The financial incentive is offered through the CARB Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP).
The opening for new voucher incentive requests is expected to begin in early 2021.
“Zero-emission electric trucks are no longer a thing of the future. We thank the state of California and CARB for providing these important dollars to help support and encourage Kenworth medium-duty truck customers in the state to purchase the new Kenworth K270E and K370E models,” said Laura Bloch, Kenworth assistant general manager for sales and marketing.
The K270E and K370E battery-electric vehicles are now available for order from Kenworth dealers in the United States and Canada.
The K270E and K370E received both CARB and EPA certification earlier this year.
To receive a voucher, vehicle purchasers and participating dealers must meet all applicable project requirements identified in the HVIP Implementation Manual.
