Kenworth to collaborate with Meritor on electric powertrain development

Kenworth will collaborate with Meritor on electric powertrain development for Class 8 Kenworth T680E battery-electric vehicles.

The electric Kenworth T680E will be a short-hood day cab in tractor configurations of 4x2 and 6x4 axles and as a 6x4 axle straight truck. The T680E will offer an operating range between 100 to 150 miles, depending on application.

"The Kenworth T680E development in collaboration with Meritor is a major advanced technology step in Kenworth's evolution of zero-emission electric powertrain solutions for our customers," said Kevin Baney, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president. "Initial production of the Kenworth T680E is expected to begin in the fourth quarter 2020 and ramp through 2021."
