Do you think electric trucks will be as capable as diesel trucks?

  • No.......batteries won’t last long enough if you use all that torque.

  • Not out of the gate. Give them three years. They will easily surpass if the current rate of innovation is maintained.

  • Not until they can make one go 800 miles on a charge and last a million miles without major repairs. I will keep my old “planet killing” Cummins thank you.

  • For short duration jobs they will be as capable HOWEVER the problem will always be recharge time and capacity. So long as a fill-up at the diesel pumps takes as little as 10 minutes, (15 if you have to shake it) a battery cannot compete.

    A Hydrogen Fuel Cell truck NOW that would be something but it seems Nikola just screwed the pooch there.
