W.A.V.E. Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience Concept Truck!
Check out the latest addition to the Walmart efficiency fleet, the Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience Concept Truck! This vehicle was unveiled at the Mid-America Trucking show, and it looks like it was taken from a Transformers movie. This concept truck is called W.A.V.E. which is abbreviated from Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience and is 20 percent more aerodynamic than the current trucks of this company.
The prototype combines microturbine-hybrid powertrain, aerodynamics, advanced control systems, electrification, and cutting-edge materials like carbon fiber all in one vehicle. The trailer is made almost exclusively with carbon fiber, saving around 4,000 pounds which can then be used to carry more freight. They are more than 84% of the way to their goal, and bold innovations like this one can only take them to the rest of the way. Check out the video below and see how amazing this truck is.
