ETHERO Truck + Energy approved for California CORE eligibility

STOCKTON, Ca. (July 2023) – ETHERO Truck + Energy is now a California Clean Off-Road Equipment Voucher Incentive Project (CORE) approved dealer. The CORE is a $273 million voucher incentive project to encourage California off-road equipment users to purchase or lease currently commercialized zero-emission off-road equipment, including ETHERO’s exclusive Lonestar Specialty Vehicles terminal tractors inventory.

This streamlined voucher incentive project helps offset the higher cost of zero-emission technology with a point-of-sale discount. There is no scrappage requirement, and additional funding is available for charging and fueling infrastructure and for equipment deployed in disadvantaged communities.

“This program has the potential to be a game-changer for California fleet owners who want to electrify their home-base operations, starting with the Lonestar SV,” said Dave Rogers, director of ETHERO’s electric truck division. “We’re always looking for more ways to meet the unique needs of each of our customers, and the CORE program is another door we’re happy to open for anyone taking that first step in their transition to becoming zero emissions, or just reducing their footprint in a way that makes sense for them.”

ETHERO’s unique model offers full sales and service of Nikola Corporation trucks and Lonestar Specialty Vehicles in California, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington D.C, and West Virginia. The dealer is headquartered in Mechanicsville, Virginia, with additional dealership locations in Elkridge, MD, and Stockton, CA.

ETHERO is also the exclusive Mid-Atlantic franchised dealership for Nikola battery-electric (BEV) and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).
