Mitsubishi FUSO announces its world's first commercialized series production all-electric vehicle. This promotional site offered free smoothies that you make on a bicycle!
NYC plans to add 2,000 electric vehicles (EVs) to its municipal vehicle fleet (presently 11,000) by 2025, which would give New York City the largest EV fleet of any U.S. city.
Daimler Trucks – world’s largest truck manufacturer – launches first all-electric truck in series production – the FUSO eCanter
Electric cars might get a lot of the fanfare, but when it comes to cutting CO2 emissions bigger electrified vehicles will also have an important part to play. Daimler is intent on playing some role in this green transformation, its latest move being to introduce the Mitsubishi Fuso eCanter in the US, describing it as the first series production all-electric truck.

Setting sail for the great crossing.
On this trip the AVONTUUR is a main part of an ecofriendly supply chain. Sustainable products transported by gas powered and electric trucks ashore and our sailing cargo vessel at sea. Together with PortFranc we are redefining sustainable trade. #cargoundersail
El Bolinger B1 es el primer truck utilitario eléctrico; el autodenominado “Anti-Tesla” tiene un chasis de aluminio, 360 caballos de fuerza y una capacidad de carga de 6100 libras (3000 kgs) lo cual es muy superior a los de su misma categoría en diesel. A pesar de ser un camión, es capaz de alcanzar de 0 a 60 mph en solo 4.5 segundos, y puede llegar a 200 km/h.
It swaps a 12.0-liter engine for a 140-kWh battery.
We’ve known for a while that Tesla intends to reveal an electric semi truck sometime in September. But Cummins managed to beat Tesla to the punch, debuting an electric big rig of its own. The Class 7 Urban Hauler Tractor, also known as the AEOS, packs a 140 kilowatt-hour battery that gives it an estimated range of about 100 miles. With additional battery packs, Cummins claims that range can be stretched to a full 300 miles.
To maximize the truck’s range, Cummins equipped the AEOS with regenerative braking, and the shape has been optimized to minimize drag. Cummins is also exploring the possibility of adding solar panels to trailers to increase the truck’s range.
Even with a trailer covered in solar panels, it’s unlikely we’ll see electric semis used for cross-country trips anytime soon. But it could work well for local and short-haul trucking. When paired with a trailer, Cummins says the AEOS has a gross vehicle weight rating limit of 75,000 pounds. With the additional battery packs, its range also isn’t all that different than what Reuters estimates Tesla’s semi truck will offer. “As a global power leader for the commercial and industrial customers we serve, with an unmatched service and support network, we are better positioned than any other company to win in new and emerging technologies and in new markets,” said Rich Freeland, Cummins’ president and chief operating officer. “We will leverage our deep industry and customer knowledge and our scale advantage to win. Over the past century, our ability to innovate and adapt has fueled our success and we are confident we are on the right path to do it again.” #Tesla#EV#ElectricTruck#PSK_PH#PSKSimracing#ProSimulationKarera#Manila
Me he encontrado con el prototipo del primer camión eléctrico autónomo ... Impresionante: http://www.arabiansupplychain.com/article-13350-finride-unveils-the-t-pod-the-worlds-first-driverless-truck/#.Wa2kgnMhXqA #stockholm#electrictruck
You really had to be there. Rebecca + I were back in action beating Tesla to the world stage of the heavy duty electric truck scene. We didn't let a few hiccups like Mother Nature rain on our parade. #electrictruck#innovation#Cummins
How about cost of ownership, comparing electric truck VS conventional? After only 5,5 years with a 18 ton, 10,6 ton payload truck you reach brea-keven. This includes much higher buying cost for e-truck, fuel costs and service over the 10 years time period. After 6 years you start saving money with a battery driven e-truck. This is within 8 year battery warranty. Go figure. Everything is going electric except rockets...#e -truck #emoss#Netherlans#oesterhout#electrictruck#TCO#totalcostofownership#trucks#EV
Norwgian Minister of state behind the wheels in Norways first fully electric heavy truck. Release was almost a year ago but most people don't know about this. Dutch Emoss builds 5 different fully electric trucks. This model: EMS 1820 has a range of about 200 km's and a payload of 10.666 tons! Battery pack of 200 kWh. #Norway#electrictruck#heavytruck#EV#emoss#emossmobilesystems#e -truck
