Caterpillar and Rio Tinto will be working to create a zero-emissions autonomous haul truck based on the Caterpillar 793 platform.

The zero-emissions haul truck will be based on Caterpillar's 220t payload 793 platform.

It is unclear whether the truck will use a battery-electric power plant or some other means of motivation.
