Modern European Highway Truck Design - The Bedford TM 751019

This paper discusses the important European legislation and marketing factors affecting truck design and describes the major features of a new range of heavy duty trucks designed primarily for operation in Europe. Some of the differences between European and North American highway trucks are also reviewed.
