What is the current outlook for medium-duty?

Don Ake discusses the outlook on medium-duty trucks for the rest of 2021.

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

 
Key Takeaways:
  • The semiconductor shortage hit the medium-duty sector back in April, and production will continue to be constricted for several more months.
  • Pent-up demand will lead to an uptick in production once the supply chain opens up. The segment will be in catch-up mode into 2022 just like heavy-duty.
