A Certificate of Conformity was issued by the EPA to Cenntro, the vehicle manufacturer, to officially confirm that the LS400 conforms to all EPA regulations and emission standards. The LS400 previously completed the EPA range test in October 2022.
The all-electric Class 4 LS400, part of Cenntro’s North American product line, is purpose-built for a wide range of applications and duty cycles including last mile delivery as well as municipal and numerous vocational services. The LS400 has a maximum payload of 7456 pounds, a top speed of 62 mph, and an 84-mile range*, with two fully charged 40 kWh LFP battery packs making it ideal for urban and suburban use.
“Receiving the EPA Certificate of Conformity is a critical milestone in U.S. Certification process and validates that the LS400 can meet the range needs of our target customers providing last mile delivery and vocational services in urban and suburban areas,” said Peter Wang, Cenntro Chairman and CEO. “We are now working toward completion of other federal requirements as we move toward deliveries in the United States.”
*Based on full charge. USA range based on vehicle tests using US EPA MCT drive cycle methodology. (www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/pdfs/EPA test procedure for EVs-PHEVs-11-14-2017.pdf).
