AMP Successfully Tests Medium-Duty Electric Step Van

September 05, 2012

AMP Electric Vehicles, an electric drive motor vehicle manufacturer, and Navistar International Corp., a holding company whose wholly owned subsidiaries and affiliates produce commercial and military trucks, jointly announced the successful initial testing of an all-electric 1,000 cubic foot step van as the first fruits of their development agreement.

The electric vehicles built under this agreement are designed for 100 miles of range on a single charge and have a maximum gross vehicle weight of 19,500 lbs. The electrification architecture is based on the AMP platform, and has been engineered to be suitable for both re-powering of existing diesel vehicles in a fleet as well as new vehicles that may be ordered by fleets in the future.

“With the ever-rising diesel prices, powering heavy-duty commercial vehicles to be all-electric is a solution for today,” said Steve Burns, AMP CEO.
