The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

  The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven The 2022 Rivian R1T is the first mass-produced electric truck to hit the U.S. market, but that’s hardly the most interesting thing about it. Its electric powertrain notwithstanding, the R1T is unlike any pickup we’ve ever driven—part truck, part sport sedan, and 100 percent amazing. It’s been speculated that pickup buyers are too conservative to embrace electrification, but after our first drive in a pre-production Rivian R1T, both on-road and off-, we think this is the electric truck that will turn them into believers.

with a major investment in the electromobility the logistics company DB Schenker wants to move forward on his climate price.

The daughter of the Deutsche Bahn announced in Essen that she has pre-ordered around 1500 electric trucks in the Swedish manufacturer Volta Trucks. The financial volume of the investment was not communicated.

«The large-scale partnership with Volta Trucks allows us to accelerate the electrification of our fleet enormously and to invest in sustainable, more environmentally friendly transport solutions," said the Schenker Manager Cyrille Bonjean. This makes the company closer to your goal of a climate-neutral logistics.

New Ranger Dropping: Ford Teases Redesigned Truck in Australia

  New Ranger Dropping: Ford Teases Redesigned Truck in Australia A new generation of Ford Ranger is on the horizon and the Blue Oval’s Australian arm is putting out the teasers to prove it. Wait, Australia? What about us Yanks? Well, there’s not a peep coming from Ford’s North American operations regarding this redesigned Ranger at the moment, but if the current midsize truck that Ford sells in the United States is anything to go by, then this new Australian-market model might provide a preview of what's to come our way. Your browser does not support this video This is due to the fact that today's U.S. Ranger is largely based on the model Ford sells in a number of international markets, including Australia.

Start in Paris

The use of first prototypes begins according to plan in the spring, it starts with two vehicles in Paris. The findings collected here should then flow into the series production of 1470 trucks, which takes place in the Austrian Steyr. When the first production vehicles are sent to the street, is still unclear.

The 16-tonner should be in the Ruhr area and other European Schenker terminals, for example, Berlin and Vienna. The range is given to the information 150 to 200 kilometers, the trucks should transport goods from distribution centers into the inner cities and other urban areas.

The pre-order is remarkable: competitors such as Deutsche Post DHL and Kühne + Nagel are not so far in the topic of electric electric cars. Although the companies are also investing heavily in climate-friendly technologies to reduce their CO2 emissions - DHL, for example, on electric transporters (Streetscooter). E-trucks are not yet on a big style for these companies. Schenker now has his electric tests to another level. Previously, the "Funke" media group had reported about it.

Tested: 2021 Honda Ridgeline Gets Slightly More Trucklike

  Tested: 2021 Honda Ridgeline Gets Slightly More Trucklike Revised styling aims to help Honda's pickup look more like a conventional truck, with mixed results. Honda's Ridgeline has always worked well as a truck. Its towing and payload abilities fulfill most needs of the typical weekend warrior, and its unibody construction and independent rear suspension deliver the best on-pavement ride and handling in the business. But the Ridgeline doesn't look enough like other trucks. It rides too low, the nose is too stubby, and the cargo box comes in only one length, which aligns with other mid-size pickups' short bed option.

For donors, about 45,000 trucks are used daily, most vehicles include subcontractors. So far, Schenker has only a good 2500 own trucks in his fleet. By purchasing the Stromer, the self-stock would become significantly larger overall.

climate-friendly logistics

experts values ​​the powerful order as an important step on the way to climate-friendly logistics. "E-trucks can help on the short distance that the CO2 emissions of the industry significantly decreases," said the logistics professor Kai-Oliver Schocke from the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences.

He gave way to keep in mind that the range of electric trucks is still limited and that the long-range has been mastered for a long time of diesel vehicles. On these routes are 40-tonner on the way - "And for this, a market-ridden electro offer is not in sight», so schocke.

2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Review: A Great Pickup That Doesn't Try Too Hard .
2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Review: A Great Pickup That Doesn't Try Too HardAfter spending a couple weeks with the 2021 Tundra TRD Pro CrewMax, I can confidently say that it still holds up against many of the competing trucks out there. This second-gen Tundra has been with us since 2007, with its last significant refresh in 2014. Yet its relatively conservative updates over the years have been sensible items that just work and the 5.7-liter V8 (that's not be long for this world in this truck) is a smooth, torquey wonder that makes towing--despite its sub-10,000-pound max capacity--a breeze.
