Einride E-Trailer concept unveiled

1 July 2022

Autonomous EV freight company Einride introduced their new E-Trailer concept along with new software and hardware products at its first Einride Mesh technology conference.

This includes updates to its Saga operating system, the E-Trailer design concept bringing end-to-end payload intelligence along with added overall range (reportedly more than 650km) from its integrated battery, possibly introducing it as early as next year, Electrek reports.

Einride was founded in Sweden in 2016 and develops electrified commercial mobility solutions and autonomous Class 8 trucks, revealing an autonomous electric logging truck called T-Log in 2018.

An electric autonomous truck known as the Pod started public road testing in Sweden in 2019 and is expected to be on US roads shortly with Einride planning New York headquarters.

Einride has begun training remote pod operators in Texas to develop new careers for electrified shipping. This year Einride intends deploying 200 battery electric Class 8 trucks from BYD in the US and has partnered with Danish shipping giant AP Moller-Maersk (aka Maersk) to further electrify shipping.

The Einride E-Trailer is designed for seamless integration with other Einride electric and autonomous vehicles to provide optimal performance, and it will also be compatible with conventional electric semi-trucks, says Electrek.
