A Wal-Mart truck is generating a lot of buzz on the internet. This new futuristic Wal-Mart truck has just been unveiled, and it looks like the Batmobile of the trucking industry. It doesn't only look really cool though. It is also taking steps to help the environment. On April 2, Canada Journal reported about this new truck in the Wal-Mart fleet.

Wal-mart's new Wal-Mart Advanced Vehicle Experience, or WAVE, is lighter than the usual truck, and there are a number of difference between this truck and any other truck on the road. Wal-Mart is one of the largest retailers in the country, and that means they have a large fleet of trucks to keep their store shelves stocked.

With low prices and huge stores, this means trucks are always on the road, and now they have a new truck that will help them save on fuel. This truck will even haul on batteries only, but that is limited. The truck is also aerodynamic, and the driver is centered in the truck cab.

This is only the beginning though. Technology is constantly improving, and improvements will be made on this truck as time goes on too. According to Gizmodo, testing has just begun on this new truck, so it isn't clear when it will be added to the fleet of Wal-Mart trucks. It is definitely a step in the right direction though.

What do you think of this new futuristic looking Wal-Mart truck?
