REE Automotive Ltd has announced today the arrival of its first demonstration P7-C fully by-wire chassis cab in the U.S. The vehicle has undergone upfitting at Knapheide in Quincy, Illinois. Knapheide, renowned as North America’s top manufacturer of work truck bodies and truck beds, equipped the P7-C with its KUVcc body. This body design is recognized for its ability to optimize organization for technicians by dividing storage space into manageable compartments accessible from both sides of the body. Through collaboration, REE and Knapheide aim to provide fleets with the flexibility to choose suitable bodies for their fully by-wire electric vehicles.

“With REE’s first of its kind fully by-wire vehicle technology and Knapheide’s proven excellence with work truck bodies, we believe that REE and Knapheide will be able to provide the right body and equipment solutions for vocational fleets across North America,” said Tali Miller, Chief Business Officer of REE Automotive. “Once upfitted, vocational fleets will be able to experience and drive REE vehicles on their routes and use it in their everyday activities. This is where we believe REE vehicles will really shine.”

“As the most popular choice in North America for work truck bodies, we are happy to work with REE and its Authorized Dealer Network to put our world class bodies on their fully-flat, full by-wire chassis,” said Chris Weiss, Vice President of Engineering for Knapheide. “We are committed to making the upfit process seamless for fleet owners and providing them with a tailored experience that will result in a customized vehicle solution they’re excited to drive.”
