Roush CleanTech’s Ford F-650 battery electric truck has been granted the California Hybrid and Zero-emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) eligibility listing.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB), in partnership with Calstart, launched the California HVIP vehicle purchase incentive program in 2009 to accelerate the acquisition of cleaner, more efficient trucks and buses in the state. HVIP provides point-of-sale discount vouchers that reduce the buying cost of vehicles operated in California.
The all-electric F-650 has a maximum speed of 65 MPH and a 100-mile range, Roush says. The company says the battery pack is warranted for five years or 60,000 miles, with a minimum 80% (110 kW) recharging capacity for the warranty lifecycle. The all-electric F-650 is suitable for a range of industry applications, including delivery, urban maintenance and aviation ground support.
