Navistar-Volkswagen to Roll Out Electric Truck

Navistar International Corp and Volkswagen Truck and Bus announced in September that their partnership will bring its first medium-duty electric-powered truck to North America.

The two companies also will merge their connectivity platforms, OnCommand Connection and RIO, into a common, brand-independent platform intended to eventually become the largest-scale global connectivity platform for commercial trucks.

The Navistar-Volkswagen Truck & Bus Alliance plans to bring their electric-powered class 6/7 truck to the market by late 2019, and ten trucks have already been delivered to a European customer for testing.

Commercial truck manufacturers are responding to increasing pressure for lower diesel emissions, particularly in urban areas.

Additionally, Navistar and VW are collaborating on integrated, next-generation diesel big bore powertrains to make available to North America by 2021.
