LAS VEGAS – Panasonic in collaboration with Tropos Motors revealed two multi-technology production-ready compact utility commercial vehicles. These right-sized, highly capable fleet truck concepts are powered by Panasonic’s proprietary software and cloud services platform OneConnectSM and represent a more accessible and a more agile fleet approach conceived to keep business flowing in tight or last mile spaces.
Whether it is delivering just-in-time information to the fleet operator for emergency response needs or keeping the run of small business uninterrupted, Tropos compact utility trucks outfitted with Panasonic domain technology fits in the tightest metro spaces to complete the job. “The goal is to address the needs of businesses that depend on small commercial vehicles with a practical and efficient solution,” said Tropos, founder & ceo, John Bautista. “With an ability to accommodate both large and purpose-built payloads, our vehicles are created with versatility in mind to fulfill the requirements of any corporate, first-responder, agricultural or last mile application.”
Panasonic’s concept trucks will be on display in the Panasonic booth 12908 in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES 2020.
