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!

In case you missed anything, here is a summary of our launch:


The Launch of Einride

On April 6th, we officially launched what we have been working on to the world. We have created a technologically advanced system including the world’s first T-pod which will change the future of the transport industry and improve the sustainability of humankind.  In addition to the T-pod, there will be charging stations and an infrastructure that will make the system the most pioneering of its kind.

The T-pod is an electric, self-driving vehicle that can be remotely controlled by drivers.  Below is an image and specifications of the T-pod, click here to learn more:

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.
