Subject: Glider Production - The End of an Era

Publication Date:8/25/2020

A new communication has been published via the Dash. Click the link below to see it.

Glider Order Availability:

Effective August 24, 2020, DTNA will no longer accept CY2020 orders for Pre-emission Freightliner and Wester Star Gliders. Production line slots are full and supplier capabilities have reached maximum capacity. Pre-emission Glider production will end on October 30, 2020 to allow sufficient time for delivery and Glider completion by the final glider assembler. SpecPro quote and order capabilities will be disabled as well.

DTNA is Exiting the Glider Business:

With the EPA GHG Phase 2 regulation implementation beginning January 1, 2021, DTNA will exit all Glider production activity at the end of CY2020 glider production on October 30, 2020.  

The End of an Era:

As DTNA exits the Glider business, a final ‘Thank You’ is owed to all of the glider customers and dealers we have served over the last 50 years. DTNA was proud to be the market leader with the most comprehensive and complete glider offering in the commercial truck industry. However, as one door closes, another opens as DTNA has changed its focus to being the undisputed e-mobility market leader with the eM2 and the eCascadia. So as DTNA sends a nostalgic fond farewell to the past, there is certainly excitement in the future!
