ACT Seeks Participants in Study of Electric Vehicle Market

ACT Research Co. is developing a multiclient study to define a vision of the United States and Canada market potential for electric medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles stretching into the year 2035.

Advances in electrical technology for vehicle propulsion have occurred at the same time that environmental concerns have increased — as reflected in carbon-restricting regulation. These have combined to put the commercial vehicle industry on the threshold of a revolution in powertrain technology, according to the Columbus, Ind.-based company.

“Participants will have the opportunity to contribute to the direction and design of the study based upon their areas of interest and needs,” ACT Principal Jim Miel said in a statement. “Personal interviews will be conducted with each participant with additional follow-up as needed. All input will be confidential.”
