REE Automotive, an automotive technology company and provider of full by-wire electric trucks and platforms, recently delivered a P7-C electric truck to Penske Truck Leasing, which will be used to demo the software-driven P7-C electric truck to customers interested in electrifying their fleets.

“We are looking forward to adding REE’s by-wire vehicle to our electric truck lineup and giving our fleet customers the opportunity to demo the vehicle and experience the technology firsthand,” said Paul Rosa, Senior Vice President of Procurement & Fleet Planning at Penske.

Penske’s customers will have the opportunity to experience the intended benefits of the world’s first FMVSS certified, software-driven, electric vehicle powered by REEcorner full by-wire technology including increased maneuverability and all-wheel drive functionality; enhanced safety with fail operational design via redundancies in hardware and software; low chassis height; and future-proofed, autonomous-ready and over-the-air upgrade capable.

“This is the fruit of a long collaboration and incorporation of Penske’s voice of the customer,” said Daniel Barel, CEO and co-founder of REE Automotive. “We are currently working on additional P7-C configurations to maximize utilization within Penske’s large product offering. By partnering with Wabash for this upfit, we believe that we were able to provide a superior product to Penske, meeting their requirements as well as expanding our roster of upfitters that can seamlessly integrate with REE’s platforms.”

REE collaborated with Wabash to upfit the P7-C with a custom DuraPlate truck body utilizing its low floor, all-wheel steer, all-wheel drive full by wire P7-C characteristics. Vehicles Powered by REE are upfit ready and designed to offer considerable benefits for body installations
