Navistar Starts Shipping ‘Clean Engine’ Trucks
Navistar International Corp. today (Dec. 17) announced it is shipping its first 300 International ProStar+ Class 8 on-highway tractors equipped with the Cummins ISX15, according to a press release.
“Reaching its ‘OK-to-Ship’ milestone on Dec. 14 – five days ahead of schedule – demonstrates the tremendous progress we’re making in delivering our first SCR-based Class 8 trucks to the marketplace,” said Troy Clarke, Navistar president and COO. “Working collaboratively and fully integrated with our Cummins colleagues, the team has beat an aggressive launch timeline while ensuring the highest levels of quality.”
The International ProStar+ with MaxxForce 13 and Cummins Emission Solutions SCR-based after-treatment system is on-track for initial pilot production in March 2013 with regular production to begin in April 2013.
The remaining lineup of heavy-duty truck models will transition to SCR-based clean engine technology in a phased launch throughout 2013 based on volume and customer demand.
