New ROUSH CleanTech electric F-650 truck makes California HVIP listing

ROUSH CleanTech’s Ford F-650 battery electric truck has achieved the California Hybrid and Zero-emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) eligibility listing.

The California Air Resources Board (CARB), in partnership with CALSTART, launched the California HVIP vehicle purchase incentive program in 2009 to accelerate the acquisition of cleaner, more efficient trucks and buses in the state. HVIP provides point-of-sale discount vouchers that reduce the buying cost of vehicles operated in California.

Engineered for performance, the all-electric F-650 has a maximum speed of 65 miles per hour and a 100-mile range.

ROUSH CleanTech’s battery electric vehicles meet all Department of Transportation regulations, comply with all applicable vehicle Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Specifications (FMVSS) requirements, and adhere to the California Zero Emissions Powertrain certification program. The battery pack is warranted for five years or 60,000 miles, with a minimum 80% (110 kW) recharging capacity for the warranty lifecycle. The all-electric F-650 is suitable for a range of industry applications, including delivery, urban maintenance and aviation ground support.

South Coast Air Quality Management District, the regulatory agency focused on improving air quality for large areas of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, helped partially fund product development.

The company, which has already supplied two electric vehicles to Penske, is currently taking orders.
