Ree Automotive has unveiled the P7-B, an electric rigid truck following months of successful customer evaluations at its Nuneaton Engineering Center. The commercial vehicle is set to target the strong and growing delivery vehicle market. The P7-B has a box truck configuration with an ultra-low flat floor (23 inches/58 centimeters), offering up to 4,400 pound. The full x-by-wire architecture supports all-wheel steer, all-wheel drive, adaptive regenerative breaking, creep control, hill start assist, and torque vectoring as standard as well as over-the-air updates.
The P7-B offers increased interior space for passengers and cargo and a low step-in height, while targeting a maximum speed of 75 mph. The vehicle has a max range of 150 miles, a payload of up to 2,000Kg, and vehicle weight ratings (GVWR) of 6,350Kg. So far feedback from potential future customers, including global delivery, logistics, and e-commerce companies, have been positive and encouraging.
“The on-track testing of the P7-B and extensive customer evaluations are another crucial step on the road to commercialization and deployment of test fleets followed by scale adaptation in fleets,” said Tali Miller, chief business officer at Ree.
Production is set to commence in 2023.
