The Mack MD Electric model is now eligible for the California HVIP Program

The MD Electric is approved for an $85,000 voucher, and the LR Electric is approved for a $120,000 voucher through HVIP.

Mack Trucks announced that the recently introduced Mack MD Electric model is approved to be a part of California’s Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP), which can help accelerate the commercialization of zero-emission trucks by offering point-of-sale vouchers to increase the affordability of advanced technologies. The MD Electric is the second Mack model to be a part of the program.

The MD Electric is approved for an $85,000 voucher, and the LR Electric is approved for a $120,000 voucher through HVIP.

The Mack MD Electric will be available like its diesel counterpart in Class 6 and Class 7 ratings. The Class 6 model has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 25,995 lbs., and the Class 7 model has a GVWR of 33,000 lbs. Both models are exempt from the 12% Federal Excise Tax (FET). The Mack MD Electric will be produced at Roanoke Valley Operations (RVO) in Roanoke Valley, Virginia, where Mack began production of the Mack MD Series in 2020.

The MD Electric’s three-phase Permanent Magnet Synchronous motor and all on-board accessories are powered by Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC) Oxide lithium-ion batteries, either in a 150 kWh or 240 kWH configuration, and the recent press release notes that the vehicle can be charged through AC or DC charging units. The regenerative braking system helps recapture energy from the multiple stops the vehicle makes each day.
