Most of the goods and supplies in this country are delivered by truckers, so anything that keeps them happy keeps us happy. Currently, they seem to be content driving 10 hours at a time and eating greasy burgers, but there could come a day when that routine gets old. Mercedes-Benz is preparing for that day.
The MB Future Truck 2025, set to hit the roads within 10 years, turns the stereotypical truck’s dingy décor upside down with a sleek interior and reclining driver’s seat. Mr. or Ms. future trucker will also have more time to dabble in dual-hands hobbies like needlepoint thanks to the “Highway Pilot” autonomous driving system that scans the road up ahead for any potential issues or Denny’s with no health code violations. The MB Future Truck 2025 is being tested as we speak in Germany and doing up to 50 mph on its own, so things are off to a good start.
