Kenworth Truck Co. announced its 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.

The financial incentive is offered through the 2021 CARB Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project.

The new models utilize a DC fast-charging system capable of fast re-charge in as little as 1 hour, which make the Kenworth K270E and K370E cabovers ideal for local pickup and delivery, as well as short regional-haul operations. End-of-shift and overnight AC charging is also offered, according to the Kirkland, Wash.-based company, a unit of Paccar Inc.

To receive a voucher, vehicle purchasers and participating dealers must meet all applicable project requirements identified in the HVIP Implementation Manual.

The announcement followed one in February that noted qualifying California buyers of Kenworth’s Class 8 T680E are eligible for a $120,000 incentive voucher from CARB. — Transport Topics
