McNeilus EV earns certifications as low-emissions vehicle.

McNeilus EV earns certifications as low-emissions vehicle. The company says the certifications mean customers can buy the Volterra ZSL with help from vouchers. ​ The McNeilus Volterra ZSL refuse collection vehicle (RCV) is built from the ground up by McNeilus and parent company Oshkosh Corporation. It was skillfully engineered with technologies and design features covered by more than 50 patents and patent applications. Now this product adds the EPA Heavy Duty Greenhouse Gas Certificate of Conformity, CARB Heavy Duty Greenhouse Gas Executive Order, and the CARB Zero Emissions Powertrain Executive Order to its list of advantages. ​ The CARB certifications also satisfy the zero-emissions vehicle reporting requirements needed to comply with advanced clean truck regulations in effect across eight states. ​ The Volterra ZSL RCV meets or exceeds clean energy mandates, and the battery management system is optimized for refuse collection, enabling all-day collection on a single charge. Other features include e-axle architecture with a B10-rating of 300,000 miles, as well as cooperative regenerative braking and battery preconditioning to enhance range and compaction. ​ CARB recently announced the Advanced Clean Fleets rule, which says refuse vehicle fleets across the state of California must transition to zero emissions by 2040. To support fleet owners with this change, the state offers a variety of purchase incentive programs such as the Hybrid and Zero Emissions Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP). ​ By receiving these CARB certifications, the Volterra ZSL refuse vehicle is eligible for purchase vouchers in state incentive programs such as the New Jersey Zero-Emission Inventive Program (NJ ZIP) or California’s Hybrid and Zero-Emissions Voucher Inventive Project (HVIP). When listed in the California HVIP catalog, for example, the Volterra ZSL may become eligible for purchase vouchers up to $120,000 per truck. ​ --
