Peterbilt Delivers Model 579EV

20 January 2020

Peterbilt said it has delivered its Model 579EV truck to Werner Enterprises for Werner’s battery electric-powered truck pilot program. Funding for the tractor was provided through the California Air Resource Board (CARB) California Climate Investments (CCI) program, along with the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD).

Werner said the truck will operate with a dedicated customer in southern California over the next year. Interestingly, Peterbilt also said pricing and option availability for 579EVs will be available on the Peterbilt’s SmartSpec sales tool in the second half of 2020.

Werner Enterprises, Inc. Omaha, Neb., is a transportation and logistics company, with coverage throughout North America, Asia, Europe, South America, Africa and Australia. Werner is among the five largest truckload carriers in the United States, with a diversified portfolio of transportation services that includes dedicated; medium-to-long-haul, regional and expedited van; and temperature-controlled.

The 579EV delivered to Werner utilizes a TransPower energy storage subsystem with a total storage capacity of 352 kWh. It is driven by a Meritor Blue-Horizon mid-ship motor drive subsystem with up to 430 hp, features an estimated range of about 150 miles and a charging time as little as 1-hour when a fast-charging system is utilized, Peterbilt said.
