The VMC 1200 will be available at the Ride and Drive portion of the event. 

“The ACT Expo brings together potential customers and fleet operators from around the world, presenting an incredible opportunity for us to showcase our newest vehicle to a highly targeted audience,” said William Trainer, Founder and CEO of Vicinity Motor Corp. “This demo in particular will showcase the work we have done alongside our partner EAVX, who integrates chassis, technology and body (Morgan) to envision  next-generation electric work truck bodies on our VMC 1200 base, highlighting the potential that our easily configurable VMC 1200 truck offers.” 

“We will also be meeting with a variety of stakeholders in the industry to introduce our full portfolio of products, such as the Vicinity Lightning EV as well as VMC Optimal EV product line. With the highest level of representatives in attendance being from California, we will be highlighting our 2021 MBTA authorization for California state transit agencies to purchase vehicles from our diverse portfolio through our tier-1 distribution partner ABC Companies,” concluded Trainer.
