Mercedes Delivers CNG Truck




Mercedes Benz announced the release of a version of its Econic tractor trailer line fueled by natural gas.  The truck is designed for local deliveries and is only available in Europe, but it is nice to see a readily available CNG vehicle.  It's a pretty cool looking truck - I'd like to see it on U.S. roads for more than the fact that it's natural gas powered.

Thanks for the links. It strikes me that Europeans can learn to drill for shale gas from U.S. companies and the U.S. can learn how to better use natural gas in transportation from Europeans.
