Charge is a new easy to assemble a type of vehicle that is designed to be safe and better for the environment

At the Wired 2016 Conference last week British automotive company Charge unveiled an electric truck that can be assembled in four hours. The company hopes that with pricing the vehicles in line with conventional trucks, barriers to entry will be removed, making them a viable option in the near future.

Charge vehicles are built in Britain using ultra-lightweight composite materials that drastically reduce weight. Using this technology with Charge's hardware which includes power electronics and motors, the operating costs of the vehicle are reduced by more than 50 percent. In an industry that is driven by price and weight, Charge could transform the sector with design simplicity.
