    You will see EV trucks at work in Norway, mostly dump trucks and distribution trucks.

    Well to he honest i did follow them exactly

    All talk is about ev.
    There sre some unknown companies that convert regular trucks to ev and had exibition of same size as well known brands, and at hanover that cost alot.

    So each brand claims their solution is best.
    Mb get award for its electric truck. It can charge 20-80% of batery in 30min.

    Interesting is that scania and man dont rely on same brand of charging units

    Forget to write man had largest amount of diesel trucks on its place.

    Except daf, which presented entirely new model and had many diesels

    So i actually enjojed their places better than others.

    I actually spend most of time looking trailers cranes....

    And trading diecast models
