New York (The Verge) — Drone truck startup Einride unveils new driverless vehicles for autonomous freight hauling theverge.com/2020/10/8/2150….
Einride, a self-driving truck startup based in Sweden, unveiled its new Autonomous Electric Transport vehicles, designed for driverless freight hauling. The vehicles are built without a cab for a human driver, and can travel up to 110 miles on battery power.
Einride has been in the business of releasing interesting, eye-catching prototype vehicles since it was founded in 2016. There was the cab-less T-Pod, released in 2017, four of which are operating on public roads hauling freight for Oatly, the Swedish food producer. A year later, the company unveiled the T-Log, built to be more powerful than its predecessor for the job of (you guessed it) hauling tons of giant tree logs. Now it has a next-generation vehicle that it hopes it can put into production. — Andrew J. Hawkins/@verge
