KAMAZ Has Designed Its First Electric Truck Without a Cab

KAMAZ has started testing its first electric truck without a cab called the Chelnok.

Russia-based KAMAZ said that the first prototype of such a vehicle — the Chelnok — had already been built and was being tested. At the same time, the company shared images of the cabless truck and revealed its specifications.

The first prototype of the Chelnok is built on a two-axle full-control chassis with single-pitched wheels. The car is 8 m long, 2.55 m wide and 4 m high. The truck is equipped with a synchronous electric motor on permanent magnets and is capable of transporting cargo weighing up to 10 t at a speed of up to 40 km/h.

KAMAZ suggests that the Chelnok could be used as a truck for logistics complexes. By the way, cabless trucks are not something fundamentally new. For example, such a car is already used on the roads of Sweden: it is called the Volvo Vera. They transport containers from logistics centers to the Port of Gothenburg.
