Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience Concept Truck

The Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience concept truck is the latest in our fleet efficiency program. The one-of-a-kind prototype offers a whole package of firsts. The tractor has very advanced aerodynamics and is powered by a prototype advanced turbine-powered, range-extending series hybrid powertrain. The trailer is made almost exclusively with carbon fiber, saving around 4,000 pounds which can then be used to carry more freight.

    So, Walmart is now getting into the automotive industry? Interesting. Very, very interesting. Personally, I think it would be cool to see some advanced concepts like these unseat the current, backwards paradigm. Hell, if these are half as good as they say, I could see some potential customers lining up for them.

    Why haven't they gone completely electric ? Much more to gain that way, for the same reasons locomotives run on electric motors

    How is Natural Gas 'renewable'? These concept vehicles come and go

    Great way to transport all of the made in China products they sell now. Sam Walton would be sick to his stomach if he saw what his kids have done to his at one time, very proud made in America stores. Walmart saves lots of money and still cut employees and add self check out registers. I have a career already and when I am going shopping, my side job is not bagging groceries, that should be the register persons job. Oh wait, they let them go along with the door greeters to save money and not have to pay insurance for that person. Oh wait again, they don't let many of their employees work full time so they don't have to get them insurance either.

    I would lie about being a truck driver if this was assigned to me… I'd say "No I don't drive a truck… but I do like to pretend its one.

    Love Walmart. They take a very innovative approach to everything and are never afraid to try and invest in new thighs.
