Wal-Mart’s Weird New Truck, On Friday, Wal-Mart (WMT) unveiled its futuristic truck at the Mid-America Trucking Show, and it looks like a vehicle out of a Transformers movie.
The tractor-trailer, which has taken the Internet by storm, is causing auto geeks to drool with its advanced turbine powertrain, electrified auxiliary components, leading edge aerodynamics, and more.
“When Wal-Mart began our sustainability journey, I never thought it would lead us to trucks like this,” said Doug McMillon, president and CEO at Wal-Mart.
The concept truck is called W.A.V.E. (Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience) and is said to be 20 percent more aerodynamic than the company’s current trucks.
“Wal-Mart is continually looking for innovative ways to increase our efficiencies and reduce our fleet’s emissions,” said Tracy Rosser, senior vice president of transportation at Wal-Mart.
