Cummins beats Tesla to the punch by revealing electric semi truck

Cummins may be best-known for producing brawny diesel engines for commercial trucks and
light-duty pickups, but it's leaping into the world of EVs with both feet. On Tuesday, the Columbus, Indiana-based company revealed an Urban Hauler Tractor concept that's pure electric. In doing so, Cummins may have stolen a little thunder from Tesla — the Silicon Valley automaker has plans to reveal an electric semi truck of its own in September.
