PACCAR Displays Innovative Electric and Hydrogen Fuel Cell Trucks at CES 2019
CES is one of the world’s largest showcases for the latest in technological innovation. PACCAR is exhibiting three zero emission vehicles: a battery-electric Peterbilt Model 579EV; a battery-electric Peterbilt Model 220EV; and a hydrogen fuel cell electric Kenworth T680 developed in collaboration with Toyota. These trucks were designed for a range of customer applications, including over-the-road goods transportation, port operations and urban distribution.
Visitors are welcome to climb aboard the trucks and explore these advanced powertrains at PACCAR’s booth, near the Westgate monorail station. In addition, visitors to the booth can learn about other innovative PACCAR technologies that increase customers’ operational efficiency, such as next generation driver assistance systems, truck platooning and in-cab human-machine interfaces.
