The seasoned clean transportation executive and Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president will discuss the commercial truck industry’s battery-electric and fuel cell landscape at North America’s leading clean fleet event.

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Organizers of the ACT Expo, the industry’s largest advanced transportation technology and clean fleet event, today announced Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President Jason Skoog will provide the keynote address for this year’s event. As the head of one of the largest and most progressive truck manufacturers in North America, Skoog will share his and the company’s perspective on the outlook for zero and near-emission commercial vehicle technology and the quest for increased fleet sustainability in the years ahead. 

Already a recognized leader in advanced technology and diesel efficiency, Peterbilt also offers a range of near-zero emission natural gas truck platforms and has moved quickly into zero-emission technologies.  Skoog will share details on these innovative zero-emission offerings, which will be complemented by the inclusion of Peterbilt’s battery-electric Model 220EV and new medium-duty natural gas Model 536 on the Expo floor, thus providing a dynamic experience for all attendees.

“Peterbilt is leading the charge when it comes to zero-emission battery-electric vehicles, with a trio of truck models out in the field accruing real world miles. Peterbilt is ready to take this accumulated experience and drive even more zero-emission technologies moving forward,” said Skoog. “We are excited to see our last-mile delivery ,regional haul,drayage fleets and refuse customers taking their first steps to help create a sustainable, zero-emissions path for the future.”

Not limited to just clean propulsion technology, Peterbilt has also taken steps to address the accelerating move into connected vehicles and autonomous. The OEM’s SmartLINQ connected truck tech monitors both engine and emissions systems, while its partnerships with leading solution providers keeps its customers linked to the health of their entire fleet. Skoog will address this and more when he takes the main stage at this year’s ACT Expo.

“Peterbilt has spent more than 80 years giving its customers state-of-the-art vehicles,” said Erik Neandross, CEO at Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA), the producers of ACT Expo. “We can’t wait to hear how the company will face the next evolution of truck technology as they continue to provide products that will meet or exceed their customer’s economic and environmental sustainability goals.”
