Kenworth Electric K270E and K370E Vehicles Eligible for $85,000 Voucher Incentive Under 2021 CARB HVIP

The new Kenworth K270E Class 6 and K370E Class 7 battery electric vehicles qualify for a $85,000 voucher incentive available to qualifying California purchasers from the California Air Resources Board (CARB). 

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

The Kenworth K270E and K370E battery electric vehicles offer direct-drive motors rated at 355 hp for the K270E and 469 hp for the K370E. The electric powertrain is available with high-density battery packs of 141kWh and 282kWh that deliver up to 100 and 200-mile range, respectively. 

The new models utilize a DC fast-charging system capable of fast re-charge in as quick as one-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.

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

For more information, contact your Kenworth dealer and visit the new CARB HVIP website (www.CaliforniaHVIP.org). The site also offers direct links to information on both the Kenworth K270E (www.californiahvip.org/vehicles/kenworth-k270e-battery-electric-truck) and Kenworth K370E (www.californiahvip.org/vehicles/kenworth-k370e-battery-electric-truck). The HVIP program anticipates accepting new voucher requests this spring.
