Peterbilt's Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience, represents a revolutionary approach to efficiency, performance, and mobility. Walmart is focused on cost savings to the consumer, and is at the forefront of technology meeting the customer's needs. This concept truck is the foundation for the future of cargo transportation worldwide. A clean power micro-turbine hybrid electric powertrain allows the flexibility of an all new architecture, creating a paradigm shift away from the traditional trucks with a large engine and cooling system. This radically new design provides superior aerodynamic performance, while putting the driver in command at the center of the vehicle for improved safety and extreme visibility. The interior's glass cockpit, modular Flex Studio Space, and 180 degree canopy, give the driver a unique operating experience unlike anything currently available on the market.
