ACT Expo day two: Photo gallery

ACT Expo is busy: Thousands of attendees, a host of exhibitors from tried-and-true truck OEMs to electrification newcomers. Hydrogen hype is growing. Most importantly, real conversations about how the industry is moving toward a zero-emissions future are happening on every corner of the show floor. This isn’t a “wouldn’t it be nice?” vibe. Decarbonization is happening. Battery electric, hydrogen fuel cell and yes, even diesel, are all playing a role.

While I pound through another day of press events and interview meetings on the show floor, scroll through the sights of the show, and don’t forget to check out our day one live blog if you missed it yesterday.

(Note: At the top of the story is a shot of the Peterbilt Model 597EV. Peterbilt had its range of battery electric vehicles on display, and Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President Jason Skoog gave a keynote address yesterday during the show.)

Volvo Trucks North America made a bevy of announcements yesterday, including new VNR Electric orders from Performance Team and 10 Roads Express.
Freightliner rolled out its eCascadia, and gave us a look under the battery electric truck’s hood.
Navistar unveiled the International eMV medium-duty battery electric truck that is in production and available for order.
Hino announced its Class 8 hydrogen fuel cell prototype truck.
The Toyota fuel cell badge on the Hino hydrogen truck is just one example of Toyota’s strong hydrogen fuel cell presence at the show.
And here’s another example: the Kenworth hydrogen fuel cell truck that is powered by a Toyota fuel cell.
Lion Electric was a new name to me, but I had a chance to meet the team and take a ride in the Lion 6—a battery electric Class 6 truck. Count on a ride-along video to drop on FE in the back half of September.
Cummins had its natural gas lineup on display.
The Cummins CNG fuel system.
Hyliion announced an upgraded hybrid powertrain.
Suppliers like Meritor had a strong electrification showing, and not just in their booth, but on the vehicles throughout the show floor that are powered by their eAxles.
Dana made new electrification product announcements at the show. Stay tuned for a full write up on their news.
Eaton had its four-speed electric powertrain transmissions on display. Why four-speeds? Stay tuned for the full story.
