“The four vehicles we are displaying at the NTEA Work Truck Show all feature highly customized capabilities we discovered and developed for our customers through our proprietary Work-Driven Design process,” said Ninneman. “We have been serving customers in the work truck market for more than four decades, and we continue to evolve with them to create unique solutions across the entire class 2-6 vehicle space.”
For the utility industry, the Utility Demo Ford Transit is designed with a Volta hybrid battery system, eliminating the need for a loud and gasoline dependent generator. The batteries create a near-silent and emission-free solution that are used to power the essential equipment and power tools necessary to service utility work sites. Also supporting the utility industry, the ConEd Utility walk-in van supports workers with a highly modular cargo area for maximum versality; a durable, lightweight aluminum body; and a low step-in height for easy entry and exit to increase driver productivity and safety.
The Hy-Vee Velocity is designed to support those utilizing fleet vehicles for their food delivery and grocery needs. Built with an 85-inch ceiling and heavy-duty cargo shelving options, the Velocity has the capability to be refrigerated and uniquely designed to fit food delivery, baking, and florist service needs. Designed for multi-stop conditions, the Hy-Vee Velocity features custom rear doors, one at 10″ wide and the other at 30″, designed for ease of driver access, a rearview camera for additional vehicle and driver safety, and three points of contact grab bars for improved ergonomics.
“The Work Truck Show is the premiere opportunity for us to demonstrate the value and showcase our expertise in designing custom, vocation-specific vehicles,” said Adams. “Creating best-in-class vehicles and solutions for fleet owners and managers is key in serving the last mile delivery vehicle segment and owning the utility and specialty service vehicle markets in the growing fleet category.”
