PACCAR’s Kenworth Truck Company was recently honored by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the Clean Air Excellence Award. Kenworth is the first commercial vehicle manufacturer to receive this accolade since inception of the award in 2000. The EPA recognized Kenworth’s innovative efforts and progress in developing advanced environmentally friendly vehicles.
Other examples of PACCAR’s environmental leadership include:
•Waste Management Inc purchased Peterbilt Model 320 diesel-hydraulic hybrid trucks for refuse collection. These vehicles utilize a hydraulic launch assist (HLA) system developed by Eaton to capture and store energy during braking.
•A Kenworth T370 is the first medium-duty diesel-electric hybrid truck in New York City’s truck fleet. The Kenworth hybrid vehicle will be used by the Department of Sanitation throughout the New York City metropolitan area.
