No Emission Electric Trucks

No Emission Electric Trucks: Controls Pollution

UPS will have 35 of the Zero-emission Electric Vehicles with 150-mile range and a driver assistance system to help with driver fatigue. A trial program with the fleet will hit the road by the end of the year in Paris and London. Sorry America, no cute trucks for you yet.

UPS already has 300 electric vehicles in Europe and the U.S. in its ongoing effort to move away from fossil fuel dependence, but none have unearthed such a response as this particular EV.

The vehicles will be charged directly from the network outside of peak times, and the battery will step in to charge the vehicles when demand for electricity in the local area is high.

This is a great solutions for countries struggling with Air Pollution like India, China, Mongolia, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Egypt and United Arab Emirates.

The curved edges give truck drivers a wider field of vision that allow them have better awareness of cyclists and pedestrians. This is part of the Arrival’s focus on equipping the new vehicle with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that improve safety and reduce driver fatigue.

Beyond the external design, the new UPS electric trucks, which are being trialled in London and Paris, are lightweight vehicles that have a zero tailpipe emission, and a battery range of more than 150 miles (240 kilometers).

While this fleet of trucks is new, UPS’ involvement in electric vehicles isn’t. Over the past decade, UPS has invested over $750 million in alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles. It has more than 300 electric vehicles and 700 hybrid electric vehicles deployed in Europe and the US and has ordered 125 new fully-electric semi-tractors to be built by Tesla in 2019.

An electric truck is a truck powered by electricity. Electric trucks promise to be a cheaper alternative to traditional trucks, while polluting less.
