Utilimaster Unveils New Velocity M3 Walk-in Cargo Van at the 2020 Work Truck Show
"As innovators in fleet vehicle design and engineering, Utilimaster translates customer feedback alongside emerging transportation, infrastructure, and technological trends into innovative designs," said
The Velocity M3 builds upon advancements from the Utilimaster Reach®, with a lighter body design, improved payload, better fuel efficiency, and maximized cargo space, punctuated with a game-changing automatic access system that opens, closes, and locks interior and exterior doors—without keys or manual effort—for unequaled ease and stop-by-stop efficiency gains.
The Velocity M3's leading driver comfort and safety innovations include OEM comfort seating, collision mitigation, blind spot detection, and a 360-degree camera system with a high definition 9" display, and rear radar sensors. Additional security measures include three-door keyless access systems with wristband RFID activation, an automatic side door and bulkhead door closure feature, and an interior camera system.
Also displayed in the Utilimaster booth is the recently fully electrified Reach EV complete vehicle, a follow-up to the presentation of the bare chassis at last year's 2019 Work Truck Show. The electrified Reach EV showcases Spartan's global commitment to emerging technologies and extending alternative propulsion technologies to customers. The Reach has served a pivotal role with key parcel delivery customers since 2011, offering a purpose-built delivery vehicle with a highly customizable cargo area.
"As the first-to-last-mile delivery segment expands alongside the growing direct-to-consumer market, our vehicles must continue to evolve to meet the needs of our customers and their evolving routes," said

The Ford Transit specialty service upfit package, features a temperature controlled mobile workspace, onboard auxiliary power system, and custom cargo and tool storage area for maximum jobsite comfort and efficiency.
