As drivers turned dealers, we know there is much to consider when purchasing a new Peterbilt truck that complements the needs of your business. It’s why we’re here to break down the information you need about the Model 579EV so you can make the best choice. 

The Model 579EV is a Class 8 truck with a battery-electric drive system that uses the energy stored in large packs of lithium iron phosphate batteries to meet propulsion and other power requirements.
