Peterbilt Motors Company will showcase its full lineup of vehicles for the refuse industry at WasteExpo May 9 – 12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center West Hall in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On display in the Peterbilt booth are two Model 520s, Peterbilt’s low-cab-forward refuse workhorse, featuring easy body builder integration as well as a best-in-class 7” Digital Display in the instrument cluster with full PTO integration. Also on display is Peterbilt’s new medium duty Model 548 in a rear loader configuration. The new medium duty lineup provides maximum versatility and rugged performance for all Class 5-8 applications.
Rounding out the booth are Peterbilt’s battery electric Class 8 offerings – the Model 520EV outfitted with an automatic side loader body and a Model 579EV in a Day Cab configuration. Peterbilt is leading the charge in delivering customers zero emission Class 6-8 battery electric vehicles for clean, efficient operation and lower overall maintenance with the largest lineup of vehicles in the industry.
The Model 579EV on display was funded as part of a $50 million grant obtained from the California Air Resources Board’s Zero and Near Zero Emission Freight Facility (ZANZEFF) program. ZANZEFF funds transform emissions reduction strategies at freight facilities throughout the state. The project is also part of California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment--particularly in disadvantaged communities.
