LONG BEACH, Calif. — Navistar Inc. announced that its new, fully electric International eMV Series medium-duty truck is now in production, in four available wheelbase lengths.

The eMV is suitable for straight rail applications, and can be spec’d with a 217-inch, 236-inch, 254-inch or 272-inch — and features Navistar’s Diamond Logic electrical system as standard equipment, according to the Lisle, Ill.-based company, a unit of Germany-based Traton Group.

The trucks are available in Classes 6-7.

“We are proud to offer the International eMV complete with inclusive consultation services provided by our specialized NEXT eMobility Solutions team to ensure seamless integration of electric vehicles into customer fleets,” Debbie Shust, vice president of medium-duty truck at Navistar, said in a release.

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 for additional protection 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, Navistar noted.

The 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 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.
