REE Automotive (Nasdaq: REE), a provider of EV platforms, today revealed P7-C, a Class 4 chassis cab offering a new cabin design built on REE’s P7 modular electric platform.
The P7-C is designed to meet the requirements for the Inflation Reduction Act incentives, which are more stringent for EVs in Class 4 and above. It’s also designed to simplify vocational upfits.
The configuration offers a maximum range of 150 miles, up to 7,000 lbs payload, a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of up to 16,000 lbs, a 24-inch platform height and 39-foot turning circle.
The P7 vehicle lineup includes the P7-C chassis cab, P7-B box truck and P7-S stripped chassis. The entire P7 electric truck line-up is powered by the REEcorners x-by-wire technology.
All vehicles in the P7 program are built for urban environments, featuring attributes such as optimal maneuverability, maximum cargo volume, low step-in height, aerodynamic design, low noise, good visibility and increased safety.
All P7 configurations are currently available to order. Initial deliveries are slated to begin in Q4 2023.
“Part of what our customers love about our highly modular P7 platform lineup is the fact that they can make the most out of it,” said Tali Miller, Chief Business Officer of REE. “Be it P7-B, the ultra-low floor electric box truck designed for the last-mile Class 3 segment, or P7-S that powers the Class 5 Proxima with EAVX and Morgan Olson for the walk-in-van market, and now the new cab design of the P7-C Class 4 chassis cab that we developed in response to market feedback.”
Certification for the P7 electric lineup is well underway—the most recent milestone was the completion of winter testing in Sweden. The first production-intent vehicles are now being tested, and certification is expected to be complete in the second half of this year.
Meanwhile, REE has added three new dealers on the West Coast to its network. All have placed initial orders for the P7 product line. Monarch Truck Center has two locations in California—San Jose and Union City. RY-DEN Truck Center is located in Fresno, California. The Truck Shop serves the Seattle/Tacoma region.
