This quirky autonomous pod wants to change the way we haul freight

Standard

There’s a big new self-driving vehicle primed to hit the roads, and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It’s technically a truck — but it looks much more like a new age spacecraft than any semi on today’s highways.Einride, the trucking company that rolled out an ambitious plan to disrupt the current freight transportation industry and introduce emission-free, self-driving trucking to the world, just got closer to actually hitting its aggressive goal. The startup officially unveiled its first prototype of the T-pod, a fully electric, autonomous truck that Einride claims could help cut Sweden’s freight-related emissions by 60 percent by 2030. We haven’t seen a road test yet, but the pod’s design is more than enough to turn some heads.
