Volvo Trucks in Pulaski County this week showed one of its new electric models, which you might soon see on Interstate 81. The Wytheville-based Camrett Logistics is starting to electrify its fleet of trucks, citing rising fuel costs and concern for the environment as reasons for switching from traditional fossil fuel-powered vehicles.
Today, a single transportation company converting to electric vehicles is worthy of the full panoply of attention – the news media invited to witness the first vehicle rolling out, TV cameras recording the action, the company president ceremoniously driving the vehicle. But the day may soon come when this kind of thing is no longer news.
