The Z Truck is a truly audacious and highly futuristic concept truck, developed by Iveco, that is designed to explore the manner in which clean and renewable sources of energy, smart technologies and driver assist technologies could inform the construction of the trucks of the future.

This particular concept truck is designed to boost fuel efficiency by 37 percent. It comes equipped with an engine that is capable of pumping out 460 horsepower and 1,475 pound-feet of torque, although it makes use of bio-methane gas rather than conventional fuel. The tank's shape itself is designed to make optimal use of physical space, while aerodynamic designs and heat management technologies helping to boost efficiency even further.

The interior of this concept truck offers different configurations for driving, working and resting, and includes everything from a fridge to a fold-out bed.

With its powerful yet efficient engine and driver-friendly interior, the Z Truck could be an important solution for long-haul trucking.
