QuickSpin: Transpower’s Electric Heavy-Duty Tractor – Article – TruckingInfo.com

You may be close to being able to order an electrically powered Class 8 tractor. TransPower’s Class 8 ElecTruck is completely battery powered and thus produces no emissions of any kind.

The developer, Poway, Calif.-based TransPower, offered us a drive of one of its 11 in-service Class 8 trucks last summer. We were bobtailing, but the results of the company’s five years of engineering testing were impressive.

Years ago I heard the story of Desmond Doss on the History Channel. He earned the Medal of Honor during World War II at Okinawa. He was also the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor. His story is fascinating and now available as an audiobook on Audible.com:  The Medic: Miracle on Hacksaw Ridge.

Interestingly, this book is narrated by Ronald Printz who is a former truck driver at Crete Carrier Corporation and, currently, works as the Safety-Recruiting Manager at Blue Water Trucking in Romeo, Michigan.
