“We’re excited to get fleet managers behind the wheel of the Volvo XC40 Recharge,” said Erik Asplund, manager, commercial fleet and rental at Volvo Car USA. “When it comes to electric vehicles for fleets, there are plenty of benefits conveyed on paper. We feel the biggest motivator for fleets to adopt EVs is to experience them firsthand, and the Fleet Forward Conference will be a great opportunity.” 

“Where else can you touch and drive multiple EV models all in one place and get needed information directly from automakers’ experts?” asked Chris Brown, conference chair. “The 2021 Fleet Forward Conference, of course. Come join us.”  

Registration for the 2021 Fleet Forward Conference is open. For more information on participating in Innovation in Motion, contact Joni Owens at [email protected].
