Smith Electric Vehicles
(now in the U.S.!
) took advantage of their appearance at The Work Truck Show
to allow some industry professionals a chance to try out their all-electric Newton. Luckily for us, several of them agreed to stand up in front of a camera and give their views about the vehicle. The candid three included award-winning
trucking industry journalist Paul Abelson, Larry Polas from the American Fleet Managers Buyers Guide
and Ken Kalen, a fleet management consultant
. All seemed impressed with the vehicle's power as well as the way it handled and thought it could perfectly fulfill its depot-based delivery mission. You can find all of the videos on their newly-launched website
or just conveniently hit the jump where we have all three short clips waiting for you as well as a silent video of the Newton rolling about the streets of Chicago and showing off its key fob-controlled cargo space roll-up door.
