Mack LR Electric refuse truck eligible for HVIP, other incentives

Mack Trucks says the Mack LR Electric model, the OEM’s first fully-electric refuse vehicle, is eligible for multiple incentive packages in the U.S. and Canada, including $120,000 per vehicle through the California Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP).

Along with the HVIP program, the Mack LR Electric is eligible for the following incentive programs:

  • MOR-EV Trucks Program, Massachusetts – up to $90,000 per electric vehicle;
  • CleanBC Go Electric Specialty Use Vehicle Incentive (SUVI) program, British Columbia, Canada – up to $100,000 per electric vehicle;
  • New York City Clean Trucks Program (NYCCTP) – up to $185,000 per electric vehicle for fleets sized with 15 trucks or less;
  • Utah Clean Diesel Program – up to 45% of the total cost of an electric vehicle; and
  • Ecocamionnage Program, Quebec, Canada – up to $175,000 per electric vehicle.

The LR Electric would also qualify for many regional grant programs that stimulate the transition to clean transportation, Mack says

The Mack LR Electric is equipped with two electric motors with a combined output of 448 continuous horsepower. The powertrain delivers 4,051 lb.-ft. of torque available from zero RPM, which is fed through a two-speed Mack Powershift transmission to Mack’s proprietary S462R 46,000-lb. rear axles. Four NMC lithium-ion (Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide) batteries are charged through a 150kW, SAE J1772-compliant charging system. All accessories are electrically driven through 12V, 24V and 600V circuits.

Mack delivered pre-production Mack LR Electric vehicles in 2020 to the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY), the world’s largest sanitation department, and Republic Services. Republic is testing the LR Electric model on a residential collection route in Hickory, North Carolina.

The Mack LR Electric, identified by a copper Bulldog hood ornament to signify its fully electric powertrain, will be built at Mack’s Lehigh Valley Operations (LVO) facility in Macungie, Pennsylvania, where all Mack Class 8 vehicles for North America and export are assembled.

Mack says equipment bodies from various manufacturers are available for the LR Electric, enabling customers to specify the truck to their unique application. Same driver/passenger-side driving configurations, seating options and door choices as the diesel-powered Mack LR model are available. The ergonomic design of the diesel Mack LR is also a feature of the LR Electric, with a few changes to the gauges and switchgear.

Mack GuardDog Connect, Mack’s integrated telematics solution, will monitor the LR Electric, and the vehicle will be supported by Mack’s extensive dealer network.
