Volkswagen and Navistar Reveal New Technology

The cooperation between Navistar and Volkswagen’s Truck & Bus division is fast-tracking technology product development, including an electric truck, integrated powertrain and connectivity initiatives. The companies announced plans to develop an electric-powered, medium-duty vehicle that will be launched for the company’s US and Canada market in late 2019 or early 2020.

“We believe the Class 6/7 (medium-duty, ed.) vehicle is ideal for electric powertrain solutions in the near term, given its abundance of packaging space, and that these vehicles typically run short distances and can depot to recharge at the end of the day.”
