EVs roll into the data-centric Geotab Connect 2023

EVs roll into the data-centric Geotab Connect 2023

Take a look at how Geotab's data-centeric conference makes the OEM connection.

There’s a clear difference between this year’s Geotab Connect and the last Connect held in January 2020. Sure, sustainability, EV and OEM data integration trends have found a place on the show floor, but the biggest, most visible indicator that technology is finding its way into every nook and cranny of the commercial vehicle space is the sheer amount of equipment on display. A Ford Transit, Rivian’s pickup truck, an International CV outfitted for utility work–the floor was crowded with equipment and it held far more than 2020’s handful of Teslas and pickup trucks.

During his keynote address, Geotab Chief Executive Officer Neil Cawse, touted the importance of OEM integration and how the company’s focus is on what can be done with the data, not just collecting it.

A Geotab product pavilion teased upcoming solutions.

“No one has the capital to do it all on their own,” noted Ed Peper, vice president, U.S., General Motor Fleet, during a panel discussion that focused on the role of OEMs and telematics service providers in the rapidly-evolving world of EVs.

For its part, Geotab’s commitment to OEM partnerships is clear at this Connect, as is the often-talked-about idea that data will be integral in operating an EV fleet–from routing and charging to driver safety and operational efficiency. Take a look for yourself.


Diesel had a decent showing as well.
