The Kenworth T680E battery electric truck now qualifies for a $120,000 voucher incentive available to qualifying California purchasers from the California Air Resources Board (CARB), the company announced. The financial incentive is offered through the 2021 CARB Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP).
For drayage fleets, the Kenworth T680E is eligible for $150,000 vouchers through HVIP as part of CARB’s Project 800 initiative, which aims to support the deployment of zero emissions trucks serving California ports by setting a goal of 800 zero-emission drayage truck orders in 2021. The increased voucher amount will only be available for a limited time.
To receive a voucher, vehicle purchasers and participating dealers must meet all applicable project requirements identified in the HVIP Implementation Manual.
