Eco-friendly tractor-trailers have gradually become quite viable cargo vehicles, and the U.S. Marine Corps' electric truck fleet proves that. Starting very small with two Smith Newton Electric lorries, the military has begun its transition to a promised 25% reliance on sustainable energy.

The Smith Newtons are silent and cut 75% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to regular diesels. The U.S. Marine Corps' electric truck fleet will continue to grow slowly, one 55mph truck at a time.
