A road truck skateboard is making its way into the trucking industry. Much of the transportation world is focused on personal vehicle carbon emissions, yet the discussions around freight truck emissions are minimal. This is why renowned French manufacturer Gaussin designed a revolutionary all-electric skateboard platform for class 8 tractors and trucks ranging from 18 to 44 tons.
Gaussin's design boasts a hydrogen-powered autonomous transportation setup ideal for long distances. For shorter distances, Gaussin designed an electric-powered transportation solution. The hydrogen-powered road truck skateboard allows truckers to drive 500 miles on a single charge and only requires a 20 minute stop when the power is low. The electric configuration offers a 180-mile range on a single charge and includes battery swapping options.
