Penske Truck Leasing has announced the anticipated delivery of the International eMV Series medium-duty truck from Navistar. This will mark Navistar’s first U.S. delivery of the full battery electric medium-duty trucks from International. As a validation partner, Penske says it plans to operate these units at various locations throughout its footprint, with the intent of evaluating the operation of electric trucks in real-world situations. The company is expanding its electrified fleet and evaluating important related technologies to support a zero-emission commercial vehicle future.
Navistar announced the launch of the International eMV Series full battery-electric trucks in Long Beach, Calif. at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo last month.
