BELLEVUE, Wash. — Three zero-emission vehicles in the form of a battery-electric Peterbilt Model 579EV; a battery-electric Peterbilt Model 220EV; and a hydrogen fuel cell electric Kenworth T680 developed in collaboration with Toyota is what Paccar brought to the table this week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 in Las Vegas.
CES is one of the world’s largest showcases for the latest in technological innovation.
The trucks were designed for a range of applications, including OTR freight delivery, port operations and urban distribution.
Visitors are welcome to climb aboard the trucks and explore the advanced powertrains at Paccar’s booth, near the Westgate monorail station. In addition, visitors to the booth can learn about other Paccar technologies such as next-generation driver assistance systems, truck platooning and in-cab human-machine interfaces.
Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF are among the leaders in the development of alternative powertrain commercial vehicles. Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF are field-testing battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell and hybrid powertrain vehicles with customers in North America and Europe. “Paccar is excited about the opportunity to create the next generation of powertrains that are environmentally-friendly and enhance our customers’ operations,” said Landon Sproull, Paccar vice president.
Kyle Quinn, Paccar chief technology officer, said Paccar is investing in the latest technology across its portfolio of products, adding that the Paccar Innovation Center in Silicon Valley, California, has enhanced the company’s access to emerging technologies and talent from around the world.
