REE Automotive showcased its new P7-S stripped chassis at the ACT Expo, aiming to provide a fully flat, modular, and high-payload platform for delivery fleets. This next-gen chassis, designed in collaboration with a leading delivery fleet, promises to revolutionize fleet management and delivery efficiencies.

P7-S Design and Features: The P7-S chassis employs P7 REEcorners®, making it a full by-wire chassis. This design allows for significant flexibility in dimensions and design, enabling fleets and body builders to create purpose-built EVs, such as step-vans and box trucks. The P7-S can be configured with both front and rear cabins, enhancing fleet utilization and OEM compatibility.

Operational Benefits: By incorporating P7 REEcorners®, the P7-S shares similarities with the P7-C chassis, improving total cost of ownership (TCO) and spare-parts management. Additionally, REE offers a certified P7-C chassis cab eligible for U.S. federal tax credits, which, combined with state incentives, could total up to $100,000 per vehicle.

Upgrade Options: The current Powered by REE® lineup provides three upgrade paths for OEMs and fleet owners to adopt full by-wire, software-driven technology:

  • Incorporate REEcorners® into existing vehicles.
  • Build an electric truck on the P7-S stripped chassis.
  • Order a certified P7-C cab chassis.

These options allow for reduced time to market while providing customizable solutions.

“From the start, we have been attuned to the voice of the customer and therefore decided to design our products with fleets in mind, by working directly with them during the design process to create the best electric truck or chassis they need,” said Daniel Barel, CEO and co-founder of REE Automotive.
