Range Energy’s RA electrified trailer platform now eligible for up to $80k in California incentives

Range Energy announced that its 53-foot electric trailer, the RA, is now eligible for point-of-sale incentives up to $80,000/unit through the California Air Resources Board Clean Off-Road Equipment (CORE) Voucher Program. The RA platform is the first trailer electrification platform to be eligible for the CORE incentive.


The RA-01 was designed to reduce diesel consumption during yard operation, at the dock, while idling, and in a multitude of other scenarios. The trailer’s electrification platform and equipment set—inclusive of an e-axle, battery pack, and smart kingpin—provides power to auxiliary devices, enables zero-emission precooling with TRUs, provides the ability to move trailers with reduced emissions, and increases the overall uptime of tractors.


Range’s electric-powered trailers hook up to any diesel-powered truck today, providing fleet owners 30-40% better fuel efficiency as they aim to meet new regulations and bring down their cost-per-mile. Range’s platform also works as a mobile power unit.

CORE is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts millions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, improving public health and the environment, and providing meaningful benefits to the most disadvantaged communities. CORE provides a streamlined voucher process by which California fleet owners and operators can receive funding to offset the cost of cleaner off-road equipment as well as develop innovative ways to reduce pollution.

Details on the RA voucher incentive for the 200 kWh unit ($80,000) and the 100 kWh unit ($40,000) are live online in the CORE catalog.
