Thor ET-One – New Competitor of Tesla’s All-Electric Semi Truck

Dakota Semler, the 25-year-old founder and chief executive officer of Thor Trucks, has developed with his team an all-electric semi that’s been dubbed the ET-One. The ET-One is the first product from the company and Semler hopes it will be the flagship model in a robust, customizable line that will also eventually include delivery vans and work vehicles. The goal, Semler relayed to Bloomberg, is to “work on a one-off basis, customizing clients’ fleets per their specifications.” Like Musk’s model, the ET-One boasts a sleek, futuristic aesthetic, an all-electric motor that ditches dirty diesel in whole, and the ability to haul up to 80,000 pounds of cargo—something currently only the industry’s highest class of trucks can tow. The Thor version also uses a 22-inch touchscreen on its dashboard which communicates with the vehicle’s electric motor and battery packs, which can carry the truck 300 miles on a charge. Thor is hoping to bring the ET-One to market in 2019 at an estimated starting price of $150,000. Take a look at other examples of all-electric trucks Semi-Autonomus Mercedes Euro-X and Audi Truck Project.

Truck of the Future – Semi-Autonomus Mercedes Euro-X

This minimalist truck named Mercedes Euro-X was actually designed by Muyeon Cho as an intermediary step between human-operated trucks and absolute autonomy. This difference is most obvious in the cabin. It falls somewhere in-between the extreme minimalism of other driverless concepts and current designs. The Euro-X cabin’s pointed face cuts through air to decrease resistance and improve mileage. You won’t find any windows, but that doesn’t mean nobody is on board! A cozy space for a “driver” has been relocated to the center and lower portion of the cabin where they can monitor systems in between kicking back and enjoying the ride! Of course, they can take over during tricky situations or when more attention is required. Also if you fond of such futuristic concepts – check another futuristic truck concept for Audi.

KamAZ Brand Future Vision

Do you remember the previous truck concept tat we’ve shown you – Audi Truck Project? Today we want to show you also something exceptional. Artyom Trofimenko’s concept KamAZ Vision truck looks like something straight out of Transformers! New V-shaped body style, based on previous generation of KamAZ trucks. Cab-over trucks usually disregard aerodynamics to fit within length regulations, but this design does what it can to minimize wind resistance with a slicked back panoramic top glass section and air-directing surfaces.

Audi Truck Project

Two designers created a project of truck concept for Audi. The goal of the project, called Truck For Audi, was to create a concept for a self-driving electric truck for the German automobile manufacturer. In this case, since the idea itself breaks new ground in the transportation world, it only made sense that designers Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko would practically reinvent the way we view these trucks. What’s left for us is quite the imaginative piece of vehicle conceptualization, featuring elongated headlights and tail lights along with design lines smoother than Miles Davis. And let’s not forget that cockpit inspired cabin. Whatever the case, if these do make it on the road eventually, they’re sure to draw significant attention from surrounding drivers.
