New York state to promote electric vehicles

The government of the state of New York has launched a USD 19 million truck voucher incentive programme to encourage the purchase of battery-electric commercial trucks, as well as other energy-efficient transportation. The scheme has two funds comprising USD 9 million for battery-electric truck vouchers offered in 30 counties in the state that have not met federal clean air standards; and a USD 10 million alternative fuels voucher fund for New York City, which also includes compressed natural gas, hybrid-electric vehicles and retrofitting diesel engines with emission control devices. The programme is directed toward class 3 to 8 trucks, which include large pick-ups, delivery vans, box trucks, buses, tractor trailers, garbage trucks and construction vehicles such as cement and dump trucks.
