New for 2014!
To keep pace with the evolving advanced truck technologies and alternative fuels market, the Green Truck Ride-and-Drive will include a closed-access driving area in addition to the traditional open road test drive course.
Participants will have the opportunity to take vehicles into a reserved section of the Indianapolis Zoo parking lot. The large, open area is closed to public traffic, so drivers can devote their attention to the vehicles they’re driving. A vehicle can be parked to demonstrate its equipment capabilities or idled to demonstrate a fuel management system. The new section also allows individuals without a commercial driver’s license (CDL) to test drive a truck requiring one.
Natural gas, propane, plug-in electric, hybrid-electric and extended-range electric vehicles will be featured at the Ride-and-Drive. The lineup includes cargo vans, shuttle buses, pickups, and medium- and heavy-duty trucks, giving prospective buyers the opportunity to try out a diverse array of technology setups.
