At a facility tour for media at the company’s Huntsville Engine Plant in Huntsville AL, Navistar International Corporation announced its success in delivering approximately 17,000 vehicles to US and Canadian customers in the past quarter.
“Like our other manufacturing facilities, our Huntsville engine plant is operating in full production mode and shipping several hundred engines each week to our truck and bus assembly locations,” said Daniel C Ustian, chairman, president, and chief executive officer at Navistar. “To date, we have built and shipped more than 15,000 EPA-compliant 2010 vehicles, and we continue to build more than 100 EPA2010 MaxxForce 13 engines every day.”
The company announced it has received more than 28,000 orders for EPA2010 vehicles to date (not including long-term, multi-year contracts), including 10,000 orders for the MaxxForce 13. Among those orders, the company also has more than 1,000 orders for the all new Class 4/5 medium-duty International TerraStar.
Navistar has submitted certification to the EPA for its MaxxForce 15 and plans to submit for EPA certification of its MaxxForce 13 at 0.2g NOx in the next few months, far ahead of when high volume production of the 0.2g NOx-certified MaxxForce 13 would be required.
The company also showcased a new campaign focused on the combination of its International ProStar+ truck and MaxxForce 13 engine, launching this November.
Navistar also announced the new International TerraStar Class 4/5 medium-duty commercial truck began rolling off the assembly line in October at its truck assembly plant in Garland TX. The first units are making their way to International dealers throughout the United States and Canada.
