Greetings. I want to introduce you to my vision of the truck of the future, Year 2045, Mercedes Benz Anataros, Blue Energy. ( for ReBrick challenge) It’s all about The Concept of fully electrical vehicle, which uses only a Electrical motor. Truck also fills with energy by using brakes, The solar panels on the roof and by the pressure plates in the shock absorbers. In the under part of the mask behind the iron bars there is a turbine, which uses air to function which is really strong at 75 M/ph. The maximum speed for trucks would raise to 75 M/Ph. Because the trucks would be more safe. The shape of the cabin would be the same with the difference of it being remodeled for aerodynamic. You can see this because the front part of the cabin is no longer flat but it’s bent in the sides. The classic lights are no longer on the roof but are instead spread around the front of the mask. The interior is also remodeled one of the big differences is that the Steering wheels is no longer on the left but it’s now on the middle and there is only enough space for one driver. And also the cabin is no longer just a cabin it’s almost a real home it’s filled with a shower and a toilet and on the other side with a refrigerator and an oven. The bed is also changed since it’s positioned differently. The truck is in a 1:16 benchmark. The benchmarks are from Mb Actros, the last model. Xl drive motor is for drive, servo for steering. Full suspension, drives are made for maximum power. Outside: -Aerodynamic cabin. -Lights spread in front of the entire mask. (1 pcs pf light) -Solar panels on the top of the cabin. -Behind the cabin on one side it’s a battery and the other side it’s a water tank. -The motor is on the bottom of the cabin. The cabin can be raised. Interior: -Space for only 1 person -The truck does not have meters he has to write them on the glass (screen) -The truck has an autopilot function. -The chair can be moved to the left so he can pull out the bed.

As some of you may know LEGO is running a Technic Building Competition with Mercedes-Benz. I was looking forward to participate and it took me a while to understand what future truck would look like. Initial idea of building truck driven by both front and back axles was quite simple to implement. Two L-motors have been used for that. Steering is performed by Servo motor and truck is controlled remotely. Fun fact - chassis without aerodynamic cover is somewhat reversible and can be used up side down. Final model is very sturdy thanks to slick and strong body. Unfortunately, due to selected width rear axle is somewhat less reliable and has gear grinding upon start but drives normally afterwards. This is something wasn't possible to completely solve having double wheels per each side.
