Navistar’s new fully-electric International eMV Series truck has gone into production, and the company is now taking customer orders.
The eMV is “ideal for any straight-rail application.” It is available in 217-, 236-, 254- and 272-inch wheelbase options.
The eMV’s 210 kW battery pack is packaged between the frame rails, and provides a 135-mile range. The motor provides peak power of over 335 hp (250 kW), or continuous power of 215 hp (160 kW).
There are three levels of regenerative braking, and a digital instrument cluster.
Both AC and DC charging capabilities are offered as standard equipment. The recommended Level 2 charging station provides 19.2 kW of power. The DC Fast Charge station option provides up to 125 kW of power.
Navistar’s NEXT eMobility Solutions provides customer support throughout the entire fleet electrification process, including consultation on vehicle charging requirements, suitable infrastructure partners and charging installation, as well as collaboration with local utilities to ensure adequate power is available.
“Our team has worked tirelessly to build an all-electric medium-duty vehicle solution that offers our customers all the environmental benefits of a zero-emission vehicle, while delivering the capabilities of a traditional medium-duty truck to help you take care of business,” said Debbie Shust, VP of Medium-Duty Trucks. “Rolling off our production lines now, we offer the International eMV complete with inclusive consultation services provided by our NEXT eMobility Solutions team to ensure seamless integration of electric vehicles into customer fleets.”
