The Kenworth T680E battery-electric truck, which has been available to order since late 2020, made its debut at CES 2022 in Las Vegas.

The Class 8 T680E is available as a day cab, either as a tractor or straight truck in a 6x4 axle configuration. The model is offered in an 82,000-pound gross vehicle weight rating. The T680E is equipped with 536 hp continuous power and up to 670 hp peak power and 1,623 lb.-ft. of torque and has a top speed of 65 mph. 

The zero-emissions T680E has an estimated operating range of 150 miles, depending on application. The truck uses the industry standard SAE CCS1 charge port, can be fully charged in approximately three hours, and features Meritor’s Blue Horizon 14Xe tandem electric powertrain. 

“The new Kenworth T680E provides our customers with a true, zero-emissions solution that will help to achieve their own green program objectives,"  said Kevin Baney, Kenworth GM and Paccar VP.

In addition to the Class 8 T680E, Class 7 K370E, and Class 6 K270E, the Kenworth Driving To Zero Emissions initiative offers new EV charging stations. Paccar Parts electric vehicle charging stations maximize coverage over a full range of Kenworth electric vehicles, with output power from 20 kilowatts (kW) to 350 kW.
