BMW Unveils Fully Electric Truck (Telegraph)

BMW has become the first car manufacturer in Europe to use a fully electric truck to transport car parts to its factory in Munich.  The 40-ton truck, which is made by Dutch commercial vehicle manufacturer Terberg, went into service on Tuesday.  BMW claims the truck will therefore save 11.8 tons of carbon dioxide every year – the equivalent to the amount one of its 3-series saloon cars would produce by going around the road almost three times.  With a maximum range of just over 60 miles, BMW estimates that the truck will theoretically be able to complete a full production day at the factory without needing any further recharging.
