Peterbilt is pleased to announce that the Model 220EV is now available for customer orders. It can be configured through the SmartSpec sales tool and ordered at one of Peterbilt’s best-in-class dealer locations, with customer deliveries expected to start by the end of 2020.
The Model 220EV is Peterbilt’s first electric configuration for medium-duty applications and provides customers a zero-emission Class 6 or 7 vehicle for clean, efficient operation and lower overall maintenance. With a range of up to 200 miles on a full charge, the Model 220EV is powered by an electric motor and features two battery packs and an onboard charger. When using the vehicle’s DC fast-charging system, the state-of-the-art, high-energy-density battery packs can recharge in one to two hours, making the Model 220EV ideal for local pickup and delivery as well as short regional haul operations.
Designed with optimal weight distribution and performance, the Model 220EV also provides greater driver comfort and productivity through a quiet ride, and the cab-over-engine configuration delivers superior maneuverability, enhanced visibility, a spacious interior and ease of serviceability for maximizing uptime. www.peterbilt.com
