Autocar opens new dedicated EV assembly line

US vocational truck maker Autocar has added an EV assembly line to its manufacturing facility in Birmingham, Alabama. Industrial engineering company Triz Advanced Manufacturing and Blackstone Construction were instrumental in developing and building the dedicated EV component line.

The line features digital confirmation terminals and scanners for quality control of each vehicle’s battery and electrical architecture. The first powertrain components to be assembled will be the company’s in-house-designed powerpacks and HV battery packs.

The EV Terminal Tractor is Autocar’s first truck to include components made using the Triz Advanced Manufacturing design. Power units and battery packs made in Birmingham will be installed in the vehicles at the company’s facility in Hagerstown, Indiana, where they are built.
