Einride What?

Positive Future #65 (Feature photo – The T-Pod Truck – CCA SA 4.0 International) Swedish company Einride (founded in 2016) has in mind to create what it calls its T-pod truck. It is an all-electric autonomous semi-truck. The truck is so futuristic that it does not even have a driver’s seat – which leaves more space for cargo. Powered by a 200 KWh battery, range is anticipated at around 125 miles. The truck has room from 15 standard pallets and a starting price of $150,000 per unit. A pilot program is set for later in 2018. What do you think? Want More? – Sign up below Special Deals Ahead…Sign up!
