In partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), New York State Department of Transportation, New York City Department of Transportation and CALSTART, NYT-VIP provides $19 million in incentives for clean vehicle technologies. The goal of the program is to promote clean air and a sustainable future for New York’s transportation system by accelerating the integration of advanced vehicle technologies in the commercial truck and bus sectors.
The LightningElectric battery conversion package is available for Ford Transit as part of Ford Motor Company’s eQVM program. The product is available on heavy-duty Transits with a 10,360-pound gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). Installation and service are performed by Ford QVM partners and dealers.
Deliveries of the new LightningElectric begin in March. Vouchers and grants are available in a variety of regions such as New York for zero-emissions vehicles.
