First cab-less and autonomous, fully electric truck on the public road
In November 2018, the Swedish startup Einride and leading logistics firm DB Schenker initiated the first installation of an autonomous, all-electric truck or “T-pod” at a DB Schenker facility in Jönköping, Sweden. It was the first commercial installation of its kind in the world.
According to Einride news, 15th May was a historic occasion. The first cab-less, electric truck – Einride’s T-pod – drove on a public road. The world premiere and inaugural run took place at DB Schenker’s facility in Jönköping, Sweden. The T-pod will transport goods between a warehouse and terminal at the facility, as part of commercial flow.
An adaptation of the T-pod designed to carry logs, the T-log is capable of SEA level 4 self-driving. It has no driver’s cab, but can be remote-controlled by a human operator when appropriate. No driver’s cab – and no driver – means a smaller vehicle, increased loading capacity, greater flexibility, increased safety, lower operating costs, and optimized energy consumption, allowing the T-log to run solely on batteries.
The Einride T-pod specs:
*Loading capacity of 16 tons
*Range 200 km (124 miles) on one charge
*Top speed 85 km/h (53 miles) (electronically limited)
*Battery capacity 300 kWh
*Size 7.3 x 2.5m (approximately)
*Weight 26 tons fully loaded.
