Navistar has launched the new fully-electric International eMV Series trucks, which the company says is ideal for any straight rail application. It is available in four different wheelbase options – 217-, 236-, 254- and 272-in. – and features the Diamond Logic electrical system as standard equipment.
“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-emissions vehicle, while delivering the capabilities of a traditional medium-duty truck to help you take care of business,” said Debbie Shust, vice president medium-duty truck at Navistar.
The eMV’s battery electric motor provides peak power of over 335 HP or 250 kW, with continuous power of 215 HP or 160 kW. The eMV has a 210kW capacity high-voltage battery that provides a 135-mile range when fully charged. Batteries are packaged between the frame rails and under warranty for five years or 100,000 miles. The eMV is also equipped with three levels of regenerative braking, allowing the vehicle to collect kinetic energy from braking and store it in the battery for use. A digital instrument cluster includes information on propulsion and regenerative load, state of charge indicator and regenerative braking indicator.
The International eMV also offers both AC and DC charging capabilities as standard equipment to allow customers to choose the best option for their fleets. The recommended Level 2 AC charging station is suitable for overnight charging and provides roughly 19.2 kW of power. The DC Fast Charge station option provides up to 125 kilowatt hours of power. The Fast Charge station also has the capability to provide multiple power options. At its highest kWh input, it can provide a full charge to the eMV in under two hours.
