Needless to say, Almedalsveckan was a success for the Einride team. The launch of the T-pod received media attention all around the world and is still being covered by the media each day.
First and foremost, we would like to thank all of you who came to our launch event in Visby or watched our live stream on Facebook or Instagram. Your support is what keeps us going!

The Launch of the T-pod
On July 4th at 10:30am CET we officially revealed the T-pod at our launch event in Almedalen. Along with the launch, we had a demonstration of our remote driving set-up (pictured below).
The overall reception of the T-pod was very positive. Of course, the question we received many times was, “How does the driver fit in there?!” Once we explained the self-driving and remote driving capabilities they were very eager to learn more. When they weren’t asking about it, everyone from kids, adults, and politicians were taking photos with the T-pod!
