REE confirms FMVSS certification feasibility of its X-by-Wire systems ahead of Q4 2023 vehicle certification
REE Automotive, an automotive technology company and provider of full by-wire electric trucks and platforms, announced that joint testing with HORIBA-MIRA confirms the feasibility of REE’s x-by-wire vehicle control system to pass FMVSS certification requirements.
REE contracted HORIBA-MIRA, a world-leader in testing, to perform internal tests, modeling certain Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) certification requirements upon which REE has determined the feasibility of P7 to meet the requirements of certification. REE plans to fully certify its P7-C and P7-S products (earlier post) by the end of 2023, including FMVSS, CARB and EPA certification, aligning with planned vehicle deliveries to dealers and eligibility for government incentives.
Both the P7-C Chassis Cab and the P7-S Stripped Chassis are powered by the same REEcorner full by-wire tech for steering, braking and drive control.
FMVSS certification of our core by-wire system is feasible based on the tests we have conducted in the past several months. This milestone is important as we set out to be the first to certify a fully by-wire system. Now that we have confirmed feasibility, the most novel step of this process is behind us, and we are confident that our P7 will pass the design-agnostic and performance-based FMVSS certification process.—Ahishay Sardes, co-founder and CTO of REE
Based on initial tests with HORIBA-MIRA, MIRA’s test engineers and drivers successfully executed REE’s feasibility test plan at MIRA’s advanced testing grounds in Coventry, UK.
