Navistar’s latest plant cuts production costs while going green

March 23, 2022

Under bright, sunny skies Wednesday in Texas, Navistar hosted its official ribbon cutting for its San Antonio Manufacturing Plant, a state-of-the-art facility that’s designed to cut production costs while pursuing the company’s long-term goals to go green in terms of EV manufacturing and plant operations.

The nearly 1 million-square-foot manufacturing facility includes a body shop, paint shop, general assembly shop and logistics center equipped to produce Class 6-8 vehicles, including electric vehicles. The plant is a sustainable baseline facility in site, building and process practices, to serve as a benchmark for Navistar’s manufacturing network. Production began in January. Notably, the first vehicle to roll off the line was their all-electric eMV.
