Yumbii, the Asian-Mexican fusion truck that first hit Atlanta's streets in 2010, is raising its environmental game with what it's calling a "super food truck." The new truck won't be dishing out kale salads and almond slivers, but instead is a eco-friendly, clean-idle certified truck running on diesel fuel.

Yumbii had the truck custom built in Los Angeles, according to a Tuesday announcement, and founder Carson Young says it's the first of its kind on the East Coast. The truck uses "state-of-the-art technology that converts exhaust into harmless nitrogen gas and water vapor, thereby reducing emissions and lessening the vehicle's environmental imprint." Young expects the latest addition to his fleet to make its debut "in the next few weeks."
