LONG BEACH, Calif. — Peterbilt Motors Co. displayed its electric vehicle lineup recently at ACT Expo here.
Peterbilt features a Model 220EV, a Model 520EV and a Model 579EV.
The 220EV is spec’d with the Meritor Blue Horizon eAxle first shown at CES in January, the 520EV will feature the Transpower mid-ship powertrain configuration, and the 579EV will feature the new Allison AXE Series e-Axle.
“Peterbilt has invested in the integration of electric powertrains into a wide range of existing products and customer applications for development and testing,” said Peterbilt’s Chief Engineer Scott Newhouse. “Today, we have 14 electric vehicles built, on our way to more than 30 by the end of the year, for real customer routes and to analyze performance so that our production options meet the standards customers expect when buying a Peterbilt.”
