Models 520 & 320 with CWI’s ISL G Near Zero Engine
Eligible for Hybrid & Zero-Emission Incentive Money
Peterbilt Model 520 and 320 trucks powered by Cummins Westport’s 8.9-liter ISL G Near Zero natural gas engine have been granted eligibility for the California Air Resources Board’s Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project, known as HVIP, the manufacturer reports.
“HVIP,” Peterbilt notes, “encourages the commercialization of low-emitting hybrid and zero-emissions trucks by assisting fleets with purchase of these advanced technology vehicles.”
The NZ-powered Peterbilt trucks are eligible for nearly $8,700 per unit, says CARB.
The Near Zero engine offers the performance and efficiency of the familiar ISL-G with 320 horsepower and 1,000 foot-pounds of torque, Peterbilt says. The engine is designed to operate on 100% natural gas as CNG/compressed natural gas, LNG/liquefied natural gas, and RNG/renewable natural gas-based versions of either.
Dealers Will Receive Vouchers
The engine “is ideal for vocational, refuse and line-haul applications,” Peterbilt says.
“Eligibility for the HVIP voucher will allow customers participating in the program to benefit from the advanced technology and rugged durability of the Models 520 and 320,” Peterbilt assistant sales and marketing GM Robert Woodall says in the Paccar company’s HVIP eligibility release.
Peterbilt announced ISL G Near Zero availability on its Model 567, 520 and 320 trucks late this past summer (F&F, August 30).
Registered dealers will receive vouchers for qualifying customer purchases, Peterbilt says.
