1/9/2014

WASHINGTON, D.C.  - Fleet professionals interested in transitioning to alternative fuels will have more opportunities to test-drive cost-effective, low-emission vehicles at this year's NTEA Green Truck Summit and Work Truck Show, March 4-7, in Indianapolis.

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is sponsoring the show's first dedicated propane autogas test drive event, the Propane Autogas Ride & Drive, beginning at noon Tuesday, March 4, and continuing through Thursday, March 6, outside the Maryland Motor Lobby at the Indianapolis Convention Center. Concurrent with the Green Truck Ride-and-Drive, the Propane Autogas Ride & Drive is open to all Green Truck Summit and Work Truck Show attendees.
 
In 2013, propane autogas sales reached an all-time high as established original equipment manufacturers (OEM) produced record numbers of dedicated propane autogas vehicles. Class 1-6 propane-autogas-fueled trucks and vans will be available for test-drives from OEMs including: Roush CleanTech as a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier, General Motors and Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. in partnership with CleanFuel USA, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc., and ICOM North America.
 
In addition, manufacturers and PERC experts will demonstrate the ease of refueling with propane autogas and answer questions from fleet managers and media professionals.
