REE completes US certification of fully x-by-wire vehicles, begins customer deliveries of P7-C electric truck

REE Automotive, developer of the REEcorner system (earlier post), has begun customer deliveries of its P7-C electric chassis cab following FMVSS and EPA certification, making it the first to certify a fully x-by-wire vehicle—a fully steer-by-wire, brake-by-wire and drive-by-wire vehicle. (Earlier post.)

REEcorner packs critical vehicle components (steering, braking, suspension, powertrain and control) into a single compact module positioned between the chassis and the wheel.

The REE P7-C medium-duty electric commercial truck has met the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) requirements and has achieved EPA approval. REE has initiated customer deliveries of the first batch of P7-C demonstration trucks for multiple fleets evaluations in North America via its Authorized Dealer Network.

Pritchard EV is the first to receive the P7-C demonstration truck for a roadshow with its large fleet customers. Additional REE authorized dealers and leading fleets are expected to receive additional P7-C demonstration units in the coming weeks.

REE’s P7-C is eligible for the US federal IRS Commercial Clean Vehicle Tax Credit (Internal Revenue Code 45W), which allows customers to receive a tax credit of up to $40,000 per vehicle. The company is also in the process of initiating eligibility for various state incentives, which could bring the total incentive to over $100,000 per vehicle, depending on the customer’s location.

REE’s proprietary REEcorner and x-by-wire technology benefits include:

  • Superior maneuverability and volumetric efficiency;

  • Enhanced safety with fail operational design via redundancies in hardware and software;

  • Improved ergonomics with low step-in height and driver-centric cabin;

  • Improved serviceability;

  • More efficient maintenance and lower spart part inventory management;

  • Improved residual value

  • Future-proofed, autonomous-ready and OTA upgrade capable;

  • Modular design and quick time to market; and

  • Optimal energy efficiency.
