Einride announces the latest Saga updates and the new electric truck E-Trailer.
At the Einride Mesh conference, Swedish company Einride introduced new software and hardware products including design concepts of the Einride Trailer and new features and functionality on the Einride Saga platform.
Einride is a freight technology company founded in 2016 and develops electrified commercial mobility solutions and autonomous Class 8 trucks. The company launched its first EV in 2018 and it’s called T-Log which is an autonomous all-electric logging truck. After the T-Log, the Swedish company unveiled the Pod, which is a similar all-electric, driverless truck. The Pod’s public road tests had begun in 2019 in Sweden and will be on the roads in the US soon.
Einride increasingly invests in the USA and announced last November the plans of having a new headquarters in New York. Also, the freight technology company will start the training of Remote Pod Operators in Texas after the Pod hits the roads.
Along with the Pod trucks, Einride also manufactures E-Trucks with the data-driven Saga OS software to optimize fleets and logistics. In 2022, the Swedish company plans to launch 200 electric Class 8 trucks from BYD in the US and has already partnered with Maersk to increase the electrification of the freight segment.
