Diesel Giant Cummins Beats Tesla with First Electric Big Rig


Dominant diesel engine manufacturer Cummins just beat Tesla by unveiling the AEOS Urban Hauler Tractor as the first all-electric big rig.

With Congress set to vote on September 6 to approve the national deployment of autonomous vehicles on September 6, Cummins Inc. and Roush Clean Tech introduced their AEOS all-electric heavy-duty commercial tractor.

The U.S. House of Representatives Transportation Committee put the deployment of autonomous (self-driving) vehicles on the fast-track in July by unanimously approving a bill that would give qualified manufacturers exemptions from auto safety standards to deploy up to 25,000 autonomous vehicles immediately, and up to 100,000 over three years. The bill nationalizes self-driving regulations by pre-empting the current jumble of state rules.
