REE unveils new design of electric truck platform

The new P7-S uses P7 REEcorners, making it a full by-wire chassis, and is designed to allow design flexibility for fleets and body builders.

REE Automotive Ltd. revealed the next generation of its P7-S stripped chassis at ACT Expo in Las Vegas. The company says the Class 5 chassis was created in collaboration with a leading delivery fleet (which they did not name), and was designed to increase delivery efficiencies and improve fleet management. Customer delivery of the first next-gen P7-S demo will take place in June.

P7-S utilizes the P7 REEcorners, making it a full by-wire chassis, and is part of the company’s P7 program which it describes as that allowing for flexibility in dimensions and design freedom for fleets and body builders to develop EVs such as step-vans, box trucks and vocational-specific electric vehicles. The P7-S is a full by-wire EV with both front and rear cabin configuration boosting fleet utilization and OEM compatibility.

By using the P7 REEcorners, the P7-S shares service and operational similarities with the P7-C which are designed to improve total cost of ownership (TCO) and spare-parts inventory management. In addition to the P7-S stripped chassis, REE offers a certified P7-C chassis cab that is eligible for U.S. federal tax credits and when combined with state incentives could reach up to $100,000 per vehicle.

The current lineup from REE offers three ways for OEM and fleet owners to upgrade existing EVs to full by-wire, software driven technology; by incorporating REEcorners into their vehicles, building an electric truck on the P7-S stripped chassis, or ordering a certified P7-C cab chassis.

“From the start, we have been attuned to the voice of the customer and therefore decided to design our products with fleets in mind, by working directly with them during the design process to create the best electric truck or chassis they need,” said Daniel Barel, chief executive officer and co-founder of REE Automotive. “Based on our flagship P7 REEcorners, we can proliferate in a rapid and cost-effective manner our modular offering, while creating exactly what the fleets want rather than taking a ‘one size fits all’ approach. REE is working with the fleets or OEMs to bring to market a vehicle quickly and with minimal CapEx investment, and solidifying this through validation from a leading delivery fleet is a testament to our go-to-market strategy.”

Specifications shared by the company include:

  • Gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR): Class 4 (16,000 lbs.) or Class 5 (18,300 lbs.)
  • Length: 234 to 341 in.
  • Track width: 83.1 in.
  • Wheelbase: 157.5 to 236.2 in.
  • Battery: 84-168 kWh
  • Range: up to 210 miles
  • Platform height: 24 in.
  • Payload: up to 10,000 lbs.
  • Turning diameter: min. 39 ft.
