Nikola Corp. announced its Nikola Tre battery-electric vehicle is eligible for the hybrid and zero-emission truck and bus voucher (HVIP) incentives from the California Air Resources Board.
Purchasers of the Nikola Tre BEV can now qualify for an incentive valued at $120,000 per truck, helping to reduce the total cost of ownership for any purchaser operating in the state of California.
With a range of up to 350 miles, the Nikola Tre BEV is expected to have the longest range among the current HVIP-eligible Class 8 tractors, according to the Phoenix-based company.
CARB launched the HVIP in 2009. It is the earliest model in the U.S. to demonstrate the function, flexibility and effectiveness of a limited pool of first-come, first-served incentives that reduce the incremental cost of clean commercial vehicles.
HVIP is administered by Calstart, a national clean transportation nonprofit consortium, on behalf of CARB. — Transport Topics
