Wal-Mart Freightliner Cascadia Hybrid
« on: November 18, 2014, 09:35:13 PM »
Saw this truck runing around out here about 3-4 year back when it was first unveiled.  Got a few crappy pics of it running I-5 with Freightliner test drivers at the helm.  I havent seen it since 2011 and figured it was scrapped or working out of some DC somewhere.  Well I was making a delivery yesterday morning down on Swan Island here in Portland near Freightliner's headquarters and Western Star assembly plant and caught this parked in a lot right off the main road where they were loading a Cascadia natural gas powered demo/test truck ont a lowboy.  Im wondering if this has ever actually done service for Wal-Mart, or was strickly more of a display collaboration piece.

Nice shot, thanks for sharing!  I believe Tonkin made a 1/64 and a 1/53 model of this with a Walmart trailer too.  I always wondered if the real thing was out there.
