REE Automotive has announced it has been granted two certifications from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for its Class 4 P7-C chassis cab vehicle. These certifications include Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) certification covering the complete vehicle and the new Zero Emission Powertrain (ZEP) certification.

The CARB certifications hold significance as they render the Powered by REE P7-C electric truck eligible for sale in California. Moreover, these certifications make the vehicle eligible for state and federal incentives totaling over $100,000 per vehicle, contingent upon customer location. The adoption of Phase 2 GHG and ZEP requirements by California and several other states in the future further underscores the importance of these certifications.

Daniel Barel, CEO and co-founder of REE Automotive, expressed enthusiasm regarding the certifications, highlighting their role in facilitating sales in California and enabling the company’s dealers to receive their Powered by REE trucks. He emphasised the certifications unlock opportunities for customers, with potential cost savings complementing the company’s technology, including the REEcorner and x-by-wire technology, which lowers the Total Cost of Ownership.

Deliveries of the REE P7-C have commenced to REE’s Authorized Dealer Network, with ongoing vehicle demonstrations planned in the coming months. The P7-C had previously achieved Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification, marking it as the first US FMVSS certified fully by-wire vehicle.
