Sweden- January 6, 2018- Swedish technology company Einride will present a new type of vehicle, the T-pod, to the American market at the 2018 North American International Auto show in Detroit Jan 13-28, 2018. The T-Pod is an electric autonomous transport vehicle that is designed and developed to be competitive to heavy-duty trucks.
The Einride T-Pod is invented and designed from the ground up for battery, electric propulsion and self-driving technology. For example, the T-pod has no cab or driver’s seat. Einride’s T-pod is a part of a transport system that uses the benefits of self-driving and electric propulsion to create a cost-competitive and emission-free transport alternative.
“The T-pod is part of the Einride transport system that uses new technology to create a cost-competitive and sustainable alternative to today’s trucks. This invention makes today´s truck as outdated as horse and carriage and just as cost completive,” commented Robert Falck, CEO of Einride.
“We are excited to bring the T-Pod to Detroit, home of automotive” continued Falck. “This auto show will be part of the launch of our T-Pod in the United States”.
