These Innovative Trucks Are Designed to Deliver Your Goods on Time and With Less Pollution
They are big, they are bulky, and they usually emit a dark cloud of smoke all throughout their journey. This is how we see trucks. But now, an innovative design is trying to change the way we look at trucks by making them lighter, more compact, elegant, and with less emissions.
Through the designs presented by a specialty company "Change," a new breed of electric trucks were showcased during the recently conducted London Technology Conference. The company has been developing their new truck design ready for release in the markets by 2017.
According to Change, the new truck design will promote less emissions from fossil fuel since electricity is the primary source of its power for the first 160 kilometers. But to augment for the long range travels, the truck is also equipped with a top-up energy source aside from the battery which can provide energy for an additional 800 kilometers. Change's electric trucks are also built with ultra lightweight composite materials, which cut down the total vehicle weight compared with the usual truck weight. It also has an auto-update online mechanism that works like smartphone applications. It is also specially built to accommodate future "driverless" modes where a designated button is already incorporated.
Denis Sverdlov, CEO of Change, is very positive about the production of this soon-to-be top-of-the-line vehicle. “We find trucks today totally unacceptable. At Charge we are making trucks the way they should be – affordable, elegant, quiet, clean and safe. We are removing all the barriers to entry for electric vehicles by pricing them in line with conventional trucks, giving every fleet manager, tradesman or company, no matter how big or small, the opportunity to change the way they transport goods and make our towns and cities better places to live in,” he said.
Through this technology on truck design, Change is looking forward to a more affordable set of trucks for different stakeholders in the future. With their high-end materials and innovative ideas, as well as lower production costs for each unit and the fact that they are now creating designs that are pleasing to the eyes, they can soon provide better options for their logistics clients.
