Einride to change the future of transport with world’s first sustainable self-driving autonomous vehicle

2017.04.05

April 6, 2017

Today marks the global launch of Einride, the company that will change the modern transportation industry. Einride has created a technologically advanced system including the world’s first autonomous vehicle which will change the future of the industry and improve the sustainability of mankind.

The Einride autonomous vehicle is an electric, self-driving vehicle that can be remotely controlled by drivers, set for prototype testing in 2017 followed by international distribution. In addition to the autonomous vehicle, the Swedish company is developing a remote driving system, charging stations and an infrastructure that will make the system the most pioneering of its kind.

Einride’s launch marks a global transition from heavy , noisy trucks with monstrous emissions and bad working conditions to emission-free , noise reduced trucks that allow workers to operate on a standard schedule closer to home.

The Einride Autonomous vehicles will start running between the cities of Gothenburg and Helsingborg, Sweden and the first active system will cover a capacity of 2,000,000 pallets per year. That corresponds to 400,000 passenger cars on the same route. Even better, all of this will run with few to no emissions.

Filip Lilja, COO at Einride, comments:

“Einride is transforming the existing transport chain from the ground up. The big companies behind long-haul trucks keep building bigger trucks to increase efficiency, which ultimately means even more emissions. We are changing that by creating a secure solution that is, not only cost effective but dramatically minimizes the negative environmental impact of the transportation industry.”

The Einride system doesn’t only benefit the environment but also improves road safety, creates new jobs and provides more cost-efficient transports for purchasers. A autonomous vehicle is the height of efficiency; personnel doesn’t have to stand by as it charges or spends an excess of time away from family and friends, and overall client logistics will be more flexible.

Robert Falck, CEO of Einride, continues:

“Our vision is to enhance the lives of all people through the delivery of a global, impact-positive supply chain infrastructure. We don’t believe our work is done when we’ve achieved carbon neutrality. Our design process is driven by our goal to have a net positive impact – whether that’s improving the lives of transport workers or reducing road traffic accidents, every element of our system aims to have a measurable positive impact on the planet.”

At the time of writing this, partners and clients have signed contracts at 60 percent of Einride’s capacity. The set goal is an active fleet of 200 autonomous vehicles by 2020.

Einride autonomous vehicle details:

Cargo capacity: 15 standard pallets Weight with full cargo: 20 tons Length: approximately 7 meters (23 feet) Battery capacity: 200 kWh energy Distance on one charge: 200km (124 miles)
