Navistar – trucks, buses, and service solutions from the International® and IC Bus® brands

Through subsidiaries and affiliated companies, Navistar produces trucks, buses, and proprietary diesel engines mainly for North American markets. These include medium to heavy trucks from the International® brand and school and public buses from the IC Bus® brand.

The portfolio of other subsidiaries includes spare parts for trucks and for diesel engines, as well as financing services.

Sustainability is embedded into Navistar’s vision, strategy and culture. The company takes a holistic look at sustainability including people, planet, responsibility, and impact.

In 2021, two zero-emissions products were launched, including a medium duty vehicle and a school bus. These fully electric zero-emissions vehicles can, depending on the emissions profile of the electricity used to charge them, enable a fully zero-emissions footprint.
