Self-Driving Electric Truck Concept

Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko have an idea for how Audi can manufacture some kick-ass trucks that will make big-boy retailers like Amazon very happy: remove the gas, and remove the driver. This is the designers' concept for a self-driving electric Audi truck.

Other than proclaiming via a giant red arrow that it will have a retractable spoiler, Smirnov and Panchenko don't say too much about the truck's specs and features on their Behance project page, but do include a ton of drawings and renderings. The first group of them is the autonomous automobile you see here. Following that are another set of images for an Plan B electric truck, which retains its human drivers (and the cost of employing them, Amazon--wamp, wamp) and goes for a more "sporty 18-wheeler" aesthetic.
