REE Automotive Ltd. is working in partnership with Knapheide to upfit REE’s P7-C chassis cabs to meet the requirements for all electric vehicle types ranging from Classes 3-5.

“With over 170 years experience in commercial vehicles, Knapheide is working with REE to design and manufacture body solutions for the REE P7-C chassis cab,” said Chris Weiss, vice president of engineering for Knapheide. “As REE is building out its dealer network around North America, we see the potential to put our bodies on their fully-flat, low-step height chassis and provide a really groundbreaking full vehicle solution.”

Knapheide bodies will complete REE’s chassis cab as part of their flagship P7 electric truck lineup.  Built to encourage flexibility and customization, the electric vehicles with the P7-C chassis cab are powered by the REEcorners, x-by-wire technology, and are purpose-built to drive down total cost of ownership (TCO) for fleets.

The vehicles will also feature optimal maneuverability, full height interior cabs, class-exclusive all-wheel drive, low step-in height, aerodynamic design, low noise, greater visibility and increased safety. All P7 configurations with Knapheide bodies including box trucks, service bodies, and platform bodies are currently available to order with initial deliveries expected in 2024.

“We’re eliminating the backend work for our customers of trying to configure a body on a chassis and understand which brands will pair well together,” said Tali Miller, chief business officer of REE. “We believe partnering with Knapheide will help make the ordering process more seamless, drastically reducing the time from order to delivery for dealers, and with an integrated product delivered.”
