First Bill O’Reilly and now Walmart going green? It must be April 1st?

Seriously though, Walmart is debuting a new concept truck that will run largely on electricity.

On Friday, Wal-Mart unveiled its futuristic truck at the Mid-America Trucking Show, and it looks like a vehicle out of a Transformers movie. The tractor-trailer, which has taken the Internet by storm, is causing auto geeks to drool with its advanced turbine powertrain, electrified auxiliary components, leading edge aerodynamics, and more.

“When Wal-Mart began our sustainability journey, I never thought it would lead us to trucks like this,” said Doug McMillon, president and CEO at Wal-Mart.

Alas, it may never make it to market because it is ‘just an idea’. Bummer.
