In an age of electric vehicles and incredible fuel efficiency, you should probably forget everything that you think you know about the truck and lorry industry.
In fact, this marketplace is currently home to some of the most exciting and innovative vehicles imaginable, from battery powered behemoths to trucks that combine robustness and artistry in equal measure.
Of course, you wouldn’t expect these trucks to deliver your next shipment from National Pallets, but they remain exceptionally functional vehicles that offer huge advantages to drivers. Here’s our pick of the top three trucks currently available:
1) The Nikola One
The recently unveiled Nikola One is a truly innovative truck, and one that utilises a fully electric drivetrain and modern, high-density lithium batteries to outstanding effect.
The power is provided by an on-the-go hydrogen fuel cell, which affords truck an impressive range of between 800 and 1,200 miles from a single charge. This, when allied with over 1,000 horsepower and 2,000 ft. lbs of torque, completes an exceptional spec that is superior to any alternative on the market.
In fact, never before has a production model class 8 truck achieved the best-in-class for fuel efficiency while also offering optimised performance, each of which is delivered seamlessly and with zero emissions.
2) The Tesla Semi Truck
On a similar note, Tesla‘s exciting Semi truck has also been unveiled to considerable fanfare in recent times.
Another innovative electric vehicle that promises to be a true market leader, this truck is reported to deliver a range of up to 600 miles on a single charge, while the cab is capable of achieving 0-60 in just five seconds.
Even with a maximum capacity load of 80,000lbs, Tesla’s Semi Truck can accelerate to 60mph in just 20 seconds, which is far superior to any other vehicles of its type on the market.
3) The Ford F-150 Raptor
We close with the smallest truck on our list, but one of the very best in terms of style, design and overall performance.
In fact, the launch of Ford‘s superb, F-150 Raptor has wowed truck enthusiasts from across the globe, with its unique specification combining robust design principles and outstanding functionality with a genuinely smooth driving experience.
At the heart of this are the vehicle’s 34-inch BFGoodrich tyres, which help the truck to maintain a lightweight feel despite its innate sturdiness and durability.
Make no mistake; this vehicle is one of the most sought-after trucks of 2018, and one that sets the standard for others to follow in the marketplace.
