I could try to tell you about every awesome truck, every mind-expanding technology, and every sustainability-driving service I saw at ACT Expo 2022, but it’s better if I show you. Or at the very least, hit the highlights. That was the goal connecting with David Sickels, editor of The Buzz EV News and my partner in crime on the Amped EV Podcast. David was holding down the studio fort at our Akron, Ohio, headquarters while I hauled the Fleet Equipment crew out to Long Beach, Calif., for ACT. In that spirit, rather than ramble on, watch the video above for a guided tour through some of the OEM highlights of ACT Expo.
Being the inquisitive and excellent journalist that David is, he stumped me with a question on Xos’s new medium-duty and heavy-duty truck availability. Here’s the answer: The new chassis cab product will be hitting production in Q1 of next year, and then the tractor product will be later in 2023, according to Dakota Semler, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO of XOS.
Stay tuned for a full interview coming soon with Semler on the new electric trucks and the company’s market strategy going forward.
Here’s a collection of some of the news posts related to what you saw in the video above:
