Press Release, Limoges, 13 June 2024: A new solution for 6×6 armoured vehicle building ~ At Eurosatory 2024, Texelis unveils CELERIS 6×6, its turnkey mobility solution for new 6×6 vehicles. CELERIS 6×6 aims at vehicle manufacturers willing to expand their ranges on a qualified, already-developed mobility platform, available now.

French specialist of mobility solutions for armoured vehicles, Texelis launched in 2023 CELERIS, its mobility solution for 4×4 vehicles. CELERIS was based Texelis’ development of the Serval 4×4 multipurpose vehicle’s mobility system, conducted for the French Army and currently in production. The next logical step for Texelis was the 6×6 architecture, which is now available for new customers.

A CELERIS family approach : CELERIS 6×6 is derived from CELERIS 4×4, retaining its philosophy and its main components. This enables commonality between both architectures, creating synergies and a comprehensive fleet approach between the two solutions. As part of the CELERIS process, Texelis is committed to adapting the mobility base to the exact customer requirements, helping them design the vehicle and supporting its industrialisation.

CELERIS is a triple commitment: commitment to developing our partner’s very own solution on his specifications and needs, commitment on full autonomy, and commitment on support throughout the whole life cycle of the vehicle.

Texelis aims at expanding CELERIS as a guarantee of performance, so that OEMs only have to say “ CELERIS inside” when presenting their new vehicles.

CELERIS 6×6 comprises the CUMMINS ISL9 engine developing 275kW, the ALLISON 3200SP transmission, the POWERLINE transfer case, as well as three Texelis T750 axles. The rear axles are available with trailing arms and double wishbones options, with a rear axle steering possible in the double wishbone configuration.

CELERIS 6×6 is an enabler for new 6×6 vehicles in several variants ranging from 18 to 26 tonnes. A high-performance base, CELERIS can accommodate 6×6 Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC), Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP), Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFV), alongside systems carriers, Self-Propelled Guns (SPGs) and other armoured and non-armoured combat or logistics systems.

Growing together: The 6×6 is aimed at OEMs or military arsenals willing to develop their capabilities and create new ranges of vehicles for their national army or for export markets. Electing Texelis’ CELERIS 6×6 ensures that mobility –arguably the most difficult part of a vehicle to qualify- will be developed as per the exact requirements, on an already proven, developed, qualified and already in production technical base.

CELERIS 6×6 originated from a clear demand from the market. It has been requested by some of Texelis’ partners looking forward to expanding the experience of CELERIS 4×4 to heavier platforms. These partners understand the value of CELERIS as an enabler for their new ranges of vehicles, bringing even more value to their customer.

CELERIS 6×6 is another step in Texelis’ growth as a provider of complete mobility solutions. Through that journey, Texelis’ ambition is to be the one-stop company for all new mobility developments: the House of Mobility.
