EV Manufacturers to Headline Work Truck Week 2023 Conference

Work Truck Week will take place at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, March 7–10, 2023.

NTEA, the Association for the Work Truck Industry, announced it added exclusive update sessions from five electric vehicle manufacturers to the Work Truck Week 2023 educational conference. These EV sessions join the dozen previously announced OEM updates. During the sessions, manufacturer representatives will cover important technical information about their vehicle chassis, design and powertrains.

Participating manufacturers are: Cenntro Automotive Corporation; Lion Electric; Lordstown Motors; VIA Motors Inc.; Xos Inc.; Chevrolet Commercial Vehicles; Daimler Truck North America; Ford Pro; Freightliner Custom Chassis; Hino Trucks; International Truck; Isuzu Commercial Truck of America; Kenworth Truck Company; Mack Trucks; Mercedes-Benz USA; Peterbilt Motors Company; and Ram Commercial. 

“Our update sessions offer truck and body equipment manufacturers, installers and upfitters the opportunity to get the facts they need to support their end-user customers and manage their businesses,” explains Kevin Koester, NTEA managing director. “There are a lot of questions and concerns about how to upfit electric vehicles, and as North America’s premier commercial vehicle event, Work Truck Week is an ideal venue to facilitate these conversations.” 

Work Truck Week will be held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, March 7–10, 2023. It encompasses Green Truck Summit, The Work Truck Show, Ride & Drive, and more. Green Truck Summit takes place at JW Marriott Indianapolis, adjacent to Indiana Convention Center, on March 7.
