The largest truck in the world is at the service of a coal mine in Siberia and has the peculiarity of being powered by four electric motors. The vehicle can carry more than 500 tonnes â€" the equivalent of seven Airbus A320-200 aircraft.

The engines that allow the vehicle to move are the result of a technology developed by Siemens-Siemens Train Automation System â€" which has been implemented in less than 2 years. The drive system consists of four electric motors of 1,200 kW each. The technology, in addition to more ecological, allows you to increase the transport capacity by about 25%, and a significant reduction of costs per tonne and increased operational efficiency, indicates Siemens said in a statement.

The vehicle is owned by BelAZ and has 20 meters long, 10 wide and 8 tall, running at a maximum speed of Deadman/h when empty. The truck runs on eight tires, which were designed in such a way that each can withstand a load of 100 tons.
