Navistar introduces International eMV electric power take-off, announces infrastructure partnership

With the availability of the ePower and ePTO electrical system options, fleets now have the ability to spec International eMV Series Class 6 and 7 battery electric trucks.

Navistar announced that the International eMV Series now has factory-installed ePower and electric power take-off (ePTO) electrical system options available. The foundation has also been laid for the introduction of a Class 8 battery electric vehicle.

The International eMV Series was first introduced at ACT Expo in 2021. Since that time, Navistar has worked in collaboration with the International dealer network and trusted industry partners to demonstrate various customer applications for customers.

With the availability of the ePower and ePTO electrical system options, fleets now have the ability to spec International eMV Series Class 6 and 7 battery electric trucks for additional market applications and, the company notes, the ePower electrical system option pulls power directly from the electric vehicle’s battery pack and is the foundation for electric transport refrigeration unit (eTRU) applications.

Electric utility and telecommunications equipment provider Altec has taken delivery of the first eMV Series truck with a factory-installed ePTO electrical system to operate a pilot distribution bucket truck, the company notes. Altec has also committed to ordering additional International eMV Series trucks with the ePTO option for upfit and sale to its utility customers in 2023.

Infrastructure partnership to prepare for an electric future

Additionally, Navistar announced its newly formed partnership with integrated infrastructure solutions partner Quanta Services Inc. (Quanta), an infrastructure and energy transition solutions provider. In partnership with Quanta, Navistar will provide International Truck and IC Bus customers with a comprehensive vehicle and charging infrastructure solution that enables fleets to implement battery-electric vehicles quickly and efficiently.

The partnership with Quanta will capitalize on Navistar’s three-step approach to delivering fully integrated eMobility solutions to customers: consulting, charging and deployment. Together, Navistar and Quanta will analyze, forecast, plan and execute across customers’ electrification journey.

Navistar’s EV consulting process begins with establishing an EV roadmap for customers by hosting discovery workshops designed to understand fleet needs and concerns around electrification. In partnership with the International and IC Bus dealer network, Navistar delivers a roadmap with scalable strategies that align with growth goals for successful adoption and continued successful use, the company noted.
