The company has unveiled the latest in its fleet efficiency program, the WAVE concept truck.
Retail corporation Walmart recently revealed its Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience or WAVE concept delivery truck, which is the latest innovation in the company's fleet efficiency program.
The WAVE truck prototype veers away from the typical boxy front design and is 20% more aerodynamic than the company's current truck models. It has an aerodynamic design that resembles a futuristic fighter plane. The truck is powered by a prototype micro-turbine, range-extending series hybrid powertrain that can run on diesel, natural gas, biodiesel, and potentially other fuels still yet to be developed.
