INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The burgeoning Work Truck Show will play host to what organizers say is the largest green truck ride-and-drive in the event’s history.
There will be 22 hyrbid, alternative fuel, all-electric and high-efficiency diesel work trucks available for attendees to drive, organizers have announced.
The Work Truck Show is hosted March 8-10 at the Indiana Convention Centre by the National Truck Equipment Association.
The Green Truck Ride-and-Drive is open to all attendees on March 8 and 9 from 12 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.
“Driving the trucks in real-world conditions gives people a true feel for how the vehicles handle, how they drive, how user-friendly they are, and how transparent the green technology is to the operator,” said Bob Johnson, NTEA fleet relations director. “Participants can see whether or not a vehicle requires any special driving techniques because of the green technology it uses. The Ride-and-Drive can really help clarify the differences, advantages and disadvantages of various green technology applications.”
