  • First Peterbilt Electric Truck Delivered to Municipality of Anchorage

A recent article in celebrated delivery of the first Peterbilt production Model 220EV battery-electric truck to the Municipality of Anchorage’s Department of Solid Waste Services.

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 on-board charger. 

ACEP is part of a demonstration project with the municipality, in partnership with eCamion and the Alaska Energy Authority, testing heavy- and medium-duty electric vehicles and innovative, battery-tied charging equipment in Anchorage.
