- Company progresses towards full vehicle certification with expected first customer deliveries by the end of 2023 and production plan of up to 300 P7 trucks in 2024
- REE Authorized Dealer Network grows to 15 dealers covering the U.S. and Canada
TEL AVIV (Oct. 18, 2023) – GlobeNewswire – REE Automotive Ltd. (Nasdaq: REE), an automotive technology company and provider of full by-wire electric trucks and platforms, today announced the continued expansion of its Authorized Dealer Network with three new dealers covering Wisconsin, Illinois and California, all placing binding orders for REE’s P7-C electric truck.
REE’s initial order book value grew by 30% since the end of August showing a strong growth representing a total combined order value of approximately $25 million. As the Company gets closer to its targeted first customer deliveries this year, REE’s North American presence continues to grow with strong demand for P7 electric trucks including boxes, service bodies, step-in vans and platform bodies. On top of its competitive total cost of ownership (TCO), technological advantages, and delivery times, REE’s P7 lineup aims to help fleets meet the requirements at both the state and federal level for tax incentives.
REE’s new authorized dealers include Lynch Truck Center, C&M Motors and XPO Sales. REE’s Authorized Dealer Network covers the United States and Canada and offers a wide network of sales and support to fleets and truck owners who are looking to convert their fleets to electric.
“We are happy to welcome Lynch Truck Center, C&M Motors and XPO Sales to our authorized dealer network,” said Tali Miller, chief business officer at REE Automotive. “Our dealers provide us with excellent exposure to the largest fleets in North America, as well as being part of our service and support network. We have a well-established supply chain, including Microvast battery packs, so we are ready to ramp up production and fill the orders in our book. With the strong incentives for electrification in the U.S., our customers can benefit from federal incentives up to $40,000 per vehicle, and up to $100,000 of incentives per vehicle in certain states.”
REE continues to make steady progress on certifying its P7 electric truck lineup as supported by its recent EPA certification and confirmed FMVSS certification-feasibility of its x-by-wire system.
To further support customer needs, REE is collaborating with market leading work-truck body manufacturers, Knapheide and Morgan Truck Body. These partnerships offer dealers and their fleet customers a complete Powered by REE vehicle, with new design applications, including boxes, service bodies, and platform bodies.
As previously shared, approved dealers are also supported by REE’s agreement with Mitsubishi HC Capital America to provide a customized finance solution for REE’s network. This agreement is designed to streamline the process of obtaining financing for dealers looking to purchase Powered by REE vehicles and accelerate the path to electrification for fleets looking to make the transition to EV.
