    How do they plan on getting power to them? I've never been to Europe so I don't know what kind of ability they have to access electricity.

    Out here I think it'd be extremely difficult to go away from diesel to electricity. A lot of work is done in extremely remote areas.

    For night time deliveries in inner cities, not only the special trailer (with silent tail lift, special sound dampening floor, etc, etc) is required, but also a quiet tractor unit in front of the trailer.

    Meeting the requirements in the past was only possible with spark-ignited natural gas engines.

    Now some manufacturers have diesel-engines with special silent-mode. Retarded injecting timing and torque/rpm limitation to meet the sound levels.

    Driver can activate the silent mode on the dashboard.
