Work Truck Show Electrified
The atmosphere at The Work Truck Show 2020 was electric — and not just because it was the show’s 20th anniversary. Electrification was a major theme of the event, as the commercial vehicle industry gathered for what has become the annual launching pad for new vocational trucks, vans, chassis, engines, bodies and equipment. Work Truck Week took place in March in Indianapolis, Indiana.
At the Show, Ford Commercial Vehicles announced its new all-electric Transit, XL Fleet introduced 2 new hybrid electric Chevrolet Silverado options, Morgan Olson unveiled its new Storm Class 2 step-van with both gasoline and electric powertrains, Motiv showcased its F-59 electrified chassis, Workhorse debuted its C650 all-electric step van, and Proterra and Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation displayed their new MT50e all-electric delivery truck chassis.
In other sustainability news, Cummins announced the Cummins Westport B6.7N natural gas engine was recently certified to meet the optional Low NOx standard of 0.02 g/bhp-hr, which makes it “near zero” certified. Go Power! introduced a solar-powered auxiliary power system, Dynamo Solar Generator, enabling customers to run equipment without generators or idling. And Isuzu revealed 2 new “efficient and eco-friendly” gasoline engines for its N-Series trucks.
Other products debuting at the Show ranged from equipment and accessories like an available new Digital Rearview Mirror on 2021 Ram ProMaster and ASA Electronics’ Voyager auto-calibrating 360° camera system, to full-size trucks like the new Crane Carrier Company Low Narrow Tilt Signature Chassis designed to be easier to maneuver through tight city alleys and the Mack MD Series of FET-exempt medium-duty trucks.
The Work Truck Show will return to Indiana Convention Center March 9-12, 2021.
