As a country the United States continues to make huge strides in trying to be more energy and fuel efficient. In 2009 the US Department of Energy challenged the manufacturers to create a more freight efficient truck and the result was Daimler’s Freightliner Supertruck. This amazing truck they created is the most fuel efficient truck on the planet! The Supertruck is capable of traveling 12.2 miles on a single gallon of diesel fuel! The international team was successful in creating a scaled down 10.7 liter engine with a Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) system. There are also solar panels on top of the trailer of the vehicle to help charge the hybrid section of the motor! To learn more about this amazing vehicle click the video below!
