Shyft Group, one of the nation's largest manufacturers of industrial work trucks, plans to debut an electric class 5 crew cab truck Wednesday at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.
The Blue Arc-brand truck has a walk-in-van style cab with a sliding door, seating for six and room to set up a mobile workstation – an unusual layout for a class 5 truck.
"It's about flexibility, innovation and creating unique solutions for our customers," Shyft CEO Daryl Adams said in a statement prior to Wednesday's reveal.
He told Automotive News that one configuration of the truck would be ideal for moving companies. An entire crew, he said, could ride to the job in the truck. Today's moving trucks usually only have room for the driver and one or two passengers.
