The new Kenworth K270E Class 6 and K370E Class 7 battery electric vehicles qualify for an $85,000 voucher incentive available to qualifying California purchasers from the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The financial incentive is offered through the 2021 CARB Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP).
The Kenworth K270E and K370E battery electric vehicles offer direct-drive motors rated at 355 HP for the K270E and 469 HP for the K370E. The electric powertrain is available with high-density battery packs of 141kWh and 282kWh that deliver up to 100 and 200-mile range, respectively, the company says.
To receive a voucher, vehicle purchasers and participating dealers must meet all applicable project requirements identified in the HVIP Implementation Manual.
