The global hub for heavy and light commercial vehicles

Solutrans is the meeting place for road and urban transport professionals. It is held every two years at Eurexpo Lyon, France. The next edition will take place from November 18 to 22, 2025.

As a world crossroads for innovation, Solutrans presents the most relevant solutions to the evolution of the truck industry and the industrial and urban vehicles. The event brings together around 1,000 exhibitors and brands (see the list of exhibitors in 2023) and 50,000 professional visitors from all over the world.

This sector is one of the most innovative, from industry to services, and the trade show offers a real showcase for the performance of vehicle manufacturers, bodybuilders, fitters, equipment manufacturers, workshop equipment manufacturers, tire professionals, and distribution networks.

The 2023 edition will reflect the major changes in road transportation: revolution in uses, energy transition, global regulatory framework, changes in the fleet of commercial and industrial vehicles…

Five major themes will be highlighted:

  • Urban deliveries: Alternative delivery modes for an increasingly restrictive city centre
  • New Energies: Diversifying powertrains, an economic and environmental challenge
  • Tires: positive impact casings at the hearts of industry issues
  • Retrofit: Improving what already exists, an economical and ecological option
  • Embedded intelligence: supporting the sector towards self-driving

Owned by the FFC (Fédération Française de Carrosserie), Solutrans is organized by Comexposium.
