Norwegian term or phrase: Tung bil
What is a "tung bil" (as opposed to a "lett bil")?

I would call it a truck, rather than heavy vehicle, however this is a specific term in terms of toll charges (charged at a toll booth for using a stretch of road).

lette kjøretøy light vehicles
tunge kjøretøy heavy vehicles

I think light-duty and heavy-duty are more common in USA
The bil/car here is a misnomer for kjøretøy/vehicle
