The T-pod is an electric, self-driving vehicle that can be remotely controlled by drivers. 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.
Our 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 T-pods 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.
March has been a very busy month for the Einride team as we prepare to launch on April 6th. Between big meetings, important presentations, and technical preparations, the team has been working hard on making this launch successful and we are so excited to share with all of you what we are working on. We have also added a few more members to the team that you will get to meet in some of our future Q&A posts!
This month, we filmed our launch video at the House of Vision studio with a very special guest star! You will find out who this guest star is very soon, so be sure to follow us on our Facebook and Instagram pages to make sure you will see it right away.
Coming up next
Next week, our CEO Robert will be presenting Einride at the Stockholm Tech Meetup on stage. The Stockholm Tech Meetup is the largest monthly startup event in Europe. Thousands of engineers, entrepreneurs, investors, etc. meet under one roof to spread their message! Einride is very excited to be at this event, and we cannot wait to share our mission with the world.
We still have a lot of work ahead of us, but the ambition, determination, and morale are higher than ever. We would like to thank all of you for your continued support, and we hope you are just as excited as us for the launch! Check back here for updates and valuable information from Einride and sign-up on our page, www.einride.eu, to join our mission!
We hope you have a great day and an even better tomorrow.
