REE Automotive P7-C receives CARB certifications: Phase 2 GHG and ZEP

REE Automotive Ltd., an automotive technology company and provider of full by-wire electric trucks and platforms, which recently announced FMVSS (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) certification (earlier post), has received two certifications from California Air Resources Board (CARB) on the Class 4 P7-C chassis cab.

The two certifications include (1) Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) covering the complete vehicle; and (2) the new Zero Emission Powertrain (ZEP) certification. In addition to California, several other states are expected to adopt the Phase 2 GHG and ZEP requirements in the coming years.

CARB certification is a requirement for eligibility for several state incentives, which combined with federal can total more than $100,000 per vehicle depending on customer location. California and several other states have indicated plans to adopt the Advanced Clean Truck Regulation, a manufacturers sales requirement to sell growing percentages of electric trucks, and requires ZEP certification.

This is an important milestone since now Powered by REE vehicles can receive more than $100,000 incentive funding which makes it even easier for fleets to electrify. We believe that this cost savings, combined with our REEcorner and x-by-wire technology’s ability to lower total cost of ownership, will boost even further the strong demand we see for our P7 lineup.

—Daniel Barel, CEO and co-founder of REE Automotive

REE’s P7-C has already achieved FMVSS and EPA certification, making it the first US FMVSS certified fully by-wire vehicle.
