Electric Vehicle - All-electric garbage trucks to sweep French streets

Cleaning up just got cleaner: an electric vehicle that hauls garbage will be introduced in France. A lot of effort is spend on the engineering of the truck to make it truly the clean vehicle that it promotes on the flanks.

The lumbering, polluting trucks that have collected garbage from French streets for years will soon become a noisy memory once a new generation of super quiet, all-electric vehicles starts making the rounds next week. The zero-emission, made-in France trucks are still large and bulky, but they promise to pack as much punch as their cousins with a vastly reduced impact on the environment and a relatively inoffensive, low humming engine sound. The Paris suburb of Courbevoie, with over 70,000 residents, will receive the first all-electric trucks on May 12.
