Peterbilt announced a special introductory lease offer on the Peterbilt Model 220EV through PacLease. The six-year lease will feature a lower monthly payment for the first year and transition to a regular payment for the remainder of the lease. This introductory lease offer can be used in conjunction with regional and state grants that are available for battery-electric vehicles.
The Model 220EV is Peterbilt’s first electric configuration for medium-duty applications in a Class 6 or 7 vehicle. Offered as part of the special lease program is a non-CDL variant featuring a 100- mile range rating, 218-inch wheelbase, and a 24-inch Morgan Body with a liftgate, making it ideal for pickup and delivery applications.
The zero-emission 220EV is powered by two TransPower battery packs with a total of 148 kWh and a Meritor Blue Horizon two-speed drive eAxle. The battery packs on the Model 220EV are warranted for a full six years or 200,000 miles, whichever comes first.
“Adding the Peterbilt Model 220EV to our SmartSpec Tool was a big first step and now with this special introductory lease offer through PacLease, Peterbilt again leads the charge in providing a flexible, innovative solution for customers looking to add electric cab-over vehicles to their fleet”, said Jason Skoog, Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president. “In the near future, several dealers will offer Model 220EVs as part of their rental programs so customers can try the Model 220EV for themselves and see all the benefits that electrification offers.”
