The Kenworth T680E battery electric truck made its debut at CES Las Vegas, the international trade fair on technological innovation that took place at the beginning of January. The truck was on diaplay at the PACCAR booth. Designed for pickup and delivery, regional haul and drayage applications, the Kenworth T680E is available as a day cab as either a tractor or straight truck in a 6×4 axle configuration. The T680E is equipped with 536 hp continuous power and up to 670 hp peak power.

Kenworth T680E e-truck: charged in around 3 hours

The zero emissions T680E truck has an estimated operating range of about 240 km, depending on application. The Class 8 battery electric vehicle can be fully charged in approximately three hours, and features Meritor’s Blue Horizon 14Xe tandem electric powertrain. The T680E’s smooth acceleration and quiet operation significantly reduces driver fatigue making it the next evolution in Kenworth’s legacy of “The Driver’s Truck”. Kenworth is part of the PACCAR group, just like other major manufacturers such as DAF and Peterbilt.

“Kenworth is leading the way in zero emissions solutions. The Kenworth T680E builds upon Kenworth’s excellent heritage of providing fleets and truck operators with outstanding and productive trucks driven by quality, innovation and technology”, said Kevin Baney, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president. “The new Kenworth T680E provides our customers with a true, zero emissions solution that will help to achieve their own green program objectives”.
