5. Volvo’s New Concept Semi Truck
Volvo’s New Concept Semi Truck looks like the future of Hybrid Big Rigs. Volvo prouds to announce 30% reduction in fuel consumption with this vehicle as a result of the implemented hybrid powertrain which reduces weight, rolling resistance, and aerodynamic drag. The hybrid system includes an electric motor system and Volvo’s 12.8-liter six-cylinder diesel engine. Other interesting improvements are the regenerative braking system that recovers energy during braking and Volvo’s I-See GPS-based support technology which helps a lot when it comes to making energy-saving choices.
4. Nicola One truck
This incredible truck of the future is a zero-emission 18-wheeler that gets a range of up to 1,200 miles. It has 1,000 horsepower engine and weighs less compared to many other diesel semis.
