Gaseous Fuel Vehicles Industry Showcase (1 hr 15 min)
The natural gas vehicle (NGV) and propane vehicle industries have reached a high level of maturity, characterized by vehicles that are reliable and capable. Yet the industries continue to innovate and expand to serve new fleet segments and use cases. This session will feature a broad overview of the industries, available vehicles by category and how fleets can specify and order what they need. Attendees will have an opportunity to hear from several large and smaller manufacturers and vehicle upfitters to provide a solid lay of the land.
