Peterbilt to show off unique SuperTruck II at Las Vegas trade show


Peterbilt Motors Company will give the public a closer look at the unique SuperTruck II at a Las Vegas trade show this week.

Those who want a closer look at SuperTruck II will get their opportunity at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) taking place January 9 through January 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Peterbilt says that they’ll have the SuperTruck II demonstrator truck on hand for the public to view at the PACCAR exhibit at booth #3501 at CES.

From Peterbilt:

SuperTruck II features an innovative, aerodynamic shape with a center drive position that improves overall visibility, a right-hand entry stand-up door, pop-out windows, cameras in place of mirrors and custom tires and wheels. Other features include a mild hybrid powertrain, a waste heat recovery system and a lightweight chassis for improved fuel economy. The split-level integral cab and sleeper features a large, wrap-around dash, 15” digital dash display for virtual gauges and critical vehicle data, an additional display for HVAC, infotainment and navigation controls, an articulated seat that rotates left and right and a pull-out desk. 

Peterbilt initially announced that it would build the truck in 2016 in partnership with Cummins as part of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SuperTruck II program. The goal of the SuperTruck II program is to increase freight ton efficiency in order to meet greenhouse gas emissions standards.

Peterbilt debuted the SuperTruck II at the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition in San Diego, California, in October 2023.
