The Fleet Forward Conference announces the vehicles and manufacturers that will participate in this year’s ride & drive — the conference’s biggest yet. To date, 20 vehicles from 13 manufacturers will be available.  

Attendees will have multiple opportunities to experience the vehicles and mingle with product experts: The Reception & Vehicle Showcase on Wednesday, Nov. 9 from 4:45 p.m. to 6 p.m.; the Ride & Drive on Thursday from 3:15 p.m. to 5 p.m., followed by the Tailgate Party until 6:30 p.m.  

The ride and drive and vehicle display will take place in a large outdoor interactive space just outside the conference area.  -  Photo: Fleet Forward

“We’ve secured a large outdoor interactive space just outside the conference area to allow attendees to drive and ride along in these electric models. For many, it’ll be their first time,” said Chris Brown, conference chair. “This is a key part of the conference’s mission moving forward — to educate fleets on new technologies, not only in the conference’s educational agenda but also behind the wheel.” 

The list of participating manufacturers and vehicles is not final.  

For many fleet attendees, the ride and drive will be the first time they'll get to drive the newest electric commercial vehicles such as BrightDrop Zevo 600, Lordstown Motors Endurance, and Ford E-Transit.  -  Photo: Fleet Forward
