Electric trucks, chassis, bodies and related equipment are among the new products launching at Work Truck Week 2022, event organizers announced.
Scheduled for March 8–11, 2022, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, new electric vehicles will be the focus of many of the 27 press conferences scheduled for Work Truck Week, show representatives said.
Among other announcements, the Shyft Group will reveal an all-new electric vehicle on a purpose-built Class 3 chassis platform, along with a charging station and other elements of the product ecosystem. Bollinger Motors will launch new electric trucks, including Class 3–6 commercial platforms and chassis cabs. Morgan Truck Body will unveil its electric vehicle dry freight and refrigerated truck body concepts. Other companies announcing plans related to electrification include Legend Fleet Solutions, SEA Electric LLC, Vanair Manufacturing, Workhorse and ZF Group.
Work Truck Week 2022 will also offer opportunities to see into the future of work trucks, show organizers said. Green Truck Summit, on March 8, includes electric product and grant updates, as well as sessions on a variety of clean energy trends in the commercial vehicle industry.
Attendees can also learn what 13 of the leading commercial vehicle manufacturers have planned at exclusive OEM update sessions, offered as part of the educational program, scheduled for March 8–10. During these sessions, company representatives share technical information on their latest chassis specifications and designs, review body and equipment installation options and provide insights into future commercial vehicle plans.
“Work Truck Week is traditionally the launching pad for new commercial trucks, equipment and technology, so it’s natural that electrification — the hottest global vehicle trend — is a dominant theme this year,” says Steve Carey, NTEA president & CEO. “The industry is at an inflection point where we have traditional OEMs, most of whom have added electric vehicles to their lineups, and emerging dedicated electric vehicle manufacturers. As a result, more than 20 electric vehicle manufacturers are exhibiting alongside dozens of electrification upfitters, modifiers and component/equipment suppliers. This is a great example of how the work truck industry is constantly innovating to design more efficient, cleaner vehicles that keep the world working.”
