REE Automotive Ltd., having recently disclosed its compliance with FMVSS (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) regulations, has now revealled the acquisition of two certifications from the California Air Resources Board (“CARB”) for its Class 4 P7-C chassis cab. These certifications encompass (1) Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas (“GHG”) compliance, which extends to the entire vehicle, and (2) the innovative Zero Emission Powertrain (“ZEP”) certification. Anticipated adoption of Phase 2 GHG and ZEP requirements by numerous states beyond California is expected in the forthcoming years.

CARB certification is a requirement for eligibility for several state incentives, which combined with federal can total over $100,000 per vehicle depending on customer location. California and several other states have indicated plans to adopt the Advanced Clean Truck Regulation, a manufacturers sales requirement to sell growing percentages of electric trucks, and requires ZEP certification.

“Being CARB certified unlocks many doors for us and for our customers as we can now sell in California, and I am excited for our California dealers as they start to receive their Powered by REE trucks,” said Daniel Barel, CEO and co-founder of REE Automotive. “This is an important milestone since now Powered by REE vehicles can receive more than $100,000 incentive funding which makes it even easier for fleets to electrify. We believe that this cost savings, combined with our REEcorner and x-by-wire technology’s ability to lower total cost of ownership, will boost even further the strong demand we see for our P7 lineup.”

REE’s P7-C has already achieved FMVSS and EPA certification, making it the first U.S. FMVSS certified fully by-wire vehicle.
