Peterbilt announced today that the all-electric cabover Model 220EV is now available for customer orders.
The Model 220EV is Peterbilt’s first electric configuration for medium-duty applications in a Class 6 or 7 vehicle. Peterbilt claims a range of up to 200 miles on a full charge, making the 220EV ideal for local pickup and delivery, as well as short regional haul operations.
When using the vehicle’s DC fast-charging system, the twin battery packs can recharge in 1-2 hours.
Peterbilt has more than 30 220EV units already on the road, including with Frito-Lay, who is using six as part of its Modesto, Calif., Zero- and Near-Zero-Emission Freight Facility Project.
The Model 220EV can be configured through the SmartSpec sales tool and ordered at one of Peterbilt’s dealer locations with customer deliveries expected to start by the end of 2020.
