BMW and the SCHERM group have collaborated to develop an electric version of a big rig truck by the company Terberg. The 40-ton truck has a range of about 62 miles per charge, and that charge takes three to four hours to complete.

“It’s CO2-free, quiet and generates almost no fine particle pollution. Compared to a diesel engine truck, the electric truck will save 11.8 tons of CO2 annually.” – BMW Group Press Release
