Top 30 Eco Transportation Trends in April

From Zero-Emission Megatrucks to Tech Brand Vehicles

— May 2, 2020 — Eco
These April 2020 eco transportation innovations include zero-emission shipping megatrucks and tech-branded concept vehicles.

While Toyota and Hino Motors are teaming up to launch a new heavy-duty, electrolyte fuel-cell truck -- aiming to make the shipping industry more sustainable by cutting emissions in half -- appliance brand Dyson recently introduced its new Dyson EV concept car. The vehicle was designed by Graham Hutchings and takes visual cues from popular Dyson household products like the Airblade and more.

Other eco transportation trends to note include Micro's micro-transportation concept vehicles. The brand specializes in portable vehicle options like an updated version of its 2016 Microlino microcar.an e-motorcycle and two e-scooters. The models address population growth and urban congestion and are also a more sustainable alternative to larger vehicles.
