Aerodynamic lorries

Given its unavoidable size and weight, a fully sized lorry is not exactly the most aerodynamic of vehicles. Much like how winglets for planes reduce wind resistance, the “TrailerTail” by ATDynamics is attached at the back of the lorry, making the lorry more aerodynamic.

Comprised of an unassuming plastic composite and metal tubing, the TrailerTail reportedly reduces fuel consumption by 6 percent! Could we see more and more lorries sporting drag reducing modifications in the future?
