Posted by Don Ake on Jul 29, 2021 12:51:06 PM

Don Ake discusses the trajectory of Class 8 orders and when we can expect to see a resurgence.

This Q&A response from Don Ake came from our July CV Update webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.

Key Takeaways:
  • Class 8 orders dropped to under 24K units, though with limited build slots left it is unlikely you will receive your order thus year anyway.
  • Record order numbers are expected for when OEMs open the order boards for 2022, which is expected to happen soon if it hasn't already.
