The futuristic truck concept of Walmart

The design of the truck this time not come from well-known automotive manufacturers but instead came from Walmart which is actually one of the largest retail companies.

However, given that the truck is very important part of Walmart as a tool to distribute their goods throughout the stores, so it is not wrong they also think about how can have an efficient truck in every aspect.

Then Walmart conducted cooperation with Peterbilt Motors, Great Dane Trailers and Capstone Turbine and many other companies to create a truck that they calls as the future truck (Truck of tomorrow) or also known as the WAVE (Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience).

By using a hybrid engine combined with a turbine powered engine so that the truck could use several types of fuels such as diesel, natural gas and biodiesel.

While its design, especially on the front claimed 20% more aerodynamic than the existing design truck today so that the edges can run faster and more fuel efficient. What is unique in this concept truck head where the door using the sliding doors and the steering wheel is in the middle so it makes it easy for the driver to look around.

And last but not least important is the back (trailer) that is 100% made of carbon fiber material that is claimed was first applied to a truck. The use of carbon fiber materials of this course will reduce the weight of the trailer and claimed to be reduced to 1,814 kg, so the weight of the truck becomes much lighter.
But unfortunately, the WalMart has not been able to ascertain whether these trucks will be produced or not. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WALMART]
