Peterbilt seeks opinions on 2002 emission standards

| 5/31/2002

Peterbilt Motors Co. has added an online survey to its web site to get customers opinions and expectations on the EPA mandated 2002 engine emission standards and their potential impact on trucking.

"There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the impact the 2002 emissions-compliant engines will have on our industry," said Nick Panza, Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president. "The online survey is a way for Peterbilt to gauge how its customers perceive the various issues and their expectations on how those issues should be resolved."

The survey includes 12 questions and addresses topics such as if the new engines will accelerate or delay the decision to purchase a new vehicle, how the pre-owned market will be effected, and how the engines will affect vehicle weight, durability and cost.
