In this article, the Poisson exponentiated Erlang truncated exponential distribution was developed and its properties such as the quantile, moment, incomplete moment and inequality measures were derived. The parameters of the new model were estimated using maximum likelihood estimation and simulation studies were performed to examine the finite sample properties of the parameters. An application of the model was demonstrated using real data set. Finally, a bivariate extension of the model was proposed.
