ALTERNATIVE FUEL ENGINES PACE 1996 TRUCK OFFERINGS

The move to alternative fuels for trucks has been under way for more than two decades, largely due to regulatory actions concerning motor vehicles. Although diesel technology has made important strides in emission controls, fleets still face increasing restrictions on using diesel trucks in certain hard-hit urban airsheds. Regulations have been proposed or are in place to limit the number of days a week diesel trucks can operate in certain districts, or require them to work after hours when traffic is lighter. Information on the following truck manufacturers is provided: Volvo GM Heavy Truck Corporation, Peterbilt Motors Company, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler Corporation (Fleet Operations), Freightliner Corporation, Navistar International Transportation Corp., Mitsubishi Fuso, and Oshkosh Truck Corporation.
