Volvo delivers first electric truck.

Volvo Trucks announced its first electric trucks to two customers in Sweden as part of a development program to bring the electric vehicles to market.

Last year, the Swedish group announced that it would bring its electric trucks to the road in 2018 and start selling them in 2019.

Over the next few months after the announcement, they unveiled a series of different electric trucks.

In September, the company unveiled an all-electric and autonomous truck without a cab.

Volvo Trucks also launched an all-electric garbage truck with up to 200 km of range.

Finally, they also teased an upcoming new all-electric semi truck.

Germany’s autobahns are famous for having no speed limits but proposals to introduce one appear to be slowly gaining ground.

The deputy head of Germany’s Police voiced his support for a limit on Friday, calling it “crazy” that some people legally drive at 200-250 km/h. He said one in four road deaths could be prevented and tailbacks reduced if a 130km/h limit was imposed

Last week, a leaked draft document from the National Platform on the Future of Mobility, a government-appointed committee, proposed setting a speed limit of 130km/h, not on the grounds of safety but as a way to reduce pollution and limit climate change.

Germany could be hit with heavy EU fines if it fails to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and poisonous nitrogen oxides. Transport emissions, which have not fallen since 1990, are a particular target for reductions.

New EU rules for truck drivers.

The new European Union regulations could make life easier for truck drivers, who have seen their who are becoming under paid and touring schedules become busier than ever.

According to a recent proposal by EU transport ministers, drivers need to stick to a 45-hour break outside the trucks after being on the road for six days. This means drivers would have to return home or stay in a hotel near their current location. In Addition, the proposal envisages the same pay for drivers operating in the same place, irrespective of their origin.

According to DW, EU officials also want to end continual tours abroad lasting several weeks because these are set by making a 7-day break in the drivers’ home countries compulsory.
