Kenworth’s new T680E battery electric vehicle is eligible for a $120,000 voucher incentive from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for qualifying California purchasers. The financial incentive is offered through the 2021 CARB Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP).
For drayage fleets, the Kenworth T680E is eligible for $150,000 vouchers through HVIP as part of CARB’s Project 800 initiative. Project 800 aims to support the deployment of zero-emissions trucks serving California ports by setting a goal of 800 zero-emission drayage truck orders in 2021. The increased voucher amount will only be available for a limited time.
To receive a voucher, vehicle purchasers and participating dealers must meet all applicable project requirements identified in the HVIP Implementation Manual. The HVIP program anticipates accepting new voucher requests this spring, Kenworth officials said in a press release. Kenworth dealers are ready to take orders as soon as HVIP reopens.
