New Technology, New Styling, Smarter than ever

New Albany, Ohio, [July 1, 2015] – Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc., (Nasdaq: CVGI) is proud to introduce updates to Bostrom Seating’s premium all-makes seat offering for class 7 and 8 heavy-duty trucks. Following the successful 2012 release of the Wide Ride™ II+Serta® seat, a new wide-cushion seat is now available.

Ready to order from July 1 2015, the new Wide Ride™ Core seat from Bostrom Seating will deliver the benefits of a wider seat design with new features and options at an affordable price. Built on the new generation Wide Ride II platform, the ‘Core’ features include a 23-inch wide seat cushion, cushion extension and front and rear cushion tilt on Bostrom’s highest performing WR2 suspension system. Optional features include a seat heater and a new optional ‘Smart’ seat memory switch.

The new Smart seat memory switch enables drivers to quickly exit the vehicle by deflating air out of the seat suspension. Upon returning to the vehicle the driver can enter the vehicle with ease while the suspension is deflated then click the switch to ‘Auto’ to inflate and return the seat to its previous height. A new color option, Saddle will be also be offered on the Wide Ride Core in Ultraleather™ and will be available by December 2015.

Patrick Miller, President of CVG’s Global Truck & Bus division said, “We are excited about the launch of new Wide Ride Core. The ‘Core’ will offer exceptional value to drivers of regional and long-haul routes, who may not need all of the features offered higher-end seats. The addition of the Smart memory valve and new Saddle color option allows customers more options than ever before.”

The introduction of the Wide Ride Core completes a generational change in Bostrom’s premium seat line-up and will be offered alongside the popular Wide Ride II+Serta® seat. The original Wide Ride seat will now be known as the Wide Ride Classic and will be available as an all-makes product until 2017.
