Navistar has unveiled its NEXTperience trailer, a new mobile unit that will offer specific eMobility training sessions to dealers and customers hosted by Navistar's NEXT eMobility Solutions team.
Navistar says the new mobile trailer will be used for sales, service and training events to create a cross-functional experience and provide end-to-end solutions. It is expected to launch early 2022.
"The NEXTperience mobile trailer concept is an all-inclusive opportunity to involve many parties in eMobility technologies, implementation strategies and deployment," says Jason Gies, vice president, eMobility Business Development, Navistar. "By connecting dealers and customers, we are ensuring that everyone is fully prepared and educated on EV technologies that are rapidly gaining momentum within the commercial vehicle industry."
The goal of the NEXTperience mobile trailer is to enable Navistar to connect dealers and customers on educational topics necessary to advance the adoption of electrification within the trucking industry, the company says. Using the NEXTperience mobile unit, the Navistar team is dedicated to creating an all-inclusive customer experience ranging from the introduction of electric vehicles (EVs) to the end of battery life. This concept trailer will enable Navistar to be agile and prepared as new regions begin to deploy zero emissions technology and expect further education on the sustainable adoption of EVs, the company says.
Navistar says the NEXTperience trailer is currently positioned to provide the following experiences:
- Sales Training
