An engine manufacturer has unveiled an electric semi-truck before Tesla announces their version next month. Cummins presented a concept model of their new truck, the Aeos Electric Commercial Vehicle, this week in Columbus, Indiana. The new truck will continue a trend of large commercial EVs that are being released in the coming years. As much of the green community has been waited on new details related to Tesla's release, Cummins is generating a lot of buzzing with their surprise announcement. 

Details given at the event include that the new Urban Hauler Tractor will have a range of 100 miles at full capacity, but there are additional batteries that can be added to jump the range all the way up to the competitive 300 miles. All things considered, that’s an amazing number, considering these trucks carry tens of thousands of weight. This range is supposed to rival the new Tesla trucks expected to make their debut in September.
