You leave out one small detail though, even if you did put a charger in your yards for them it would drive the cost of heating and cooling your house up too.

Maybe I am the damaged one. Ive used the apple from Yakima example before. If I had to pay .70 a apple retail in 2001, I rather just wait until I get to wenatchee or some place and get it direct at .15 or 25 a pound. In anything if you needed to charge say 1.50 or even 2.00 a pound for those apples as a truck load sold, and delivered as such to say walmart with a rate sufficient to you to make a good living and pay drivers well, I don't mind paying say 50 dollars more on my power bill for the electricity. But I need a few years to adapt to that new bill situation. I budget the hell out of the electric (Which handles most all things) to cover any bad months where the bill will be high.
Electricty by itself is CHEAP. It's the #### administration charges, taxes, local charges and storm damage charges among other things that ringading my stupid wallet Sir.

- Time to ReCharge a battery at full capacity?
- Cost to recharge it
- how many stations? Where are these charging stations? I've been seeing walmart add charging stations for regular electric or hybrid sedans at their parking lots, but are these compatible with Semis? Plus Semi will need their own dedicated aisle for its size? Maybe Tesla partners with Loves/Pilots, etc? too early but some questions need to be answered...
Judging by some people's replies, they thought the wheel would never work when it was invented too.
Innovation takes time to reach reality.
Why does everyone think that if something doesn't work 100% the way it works now it's useless?
I guess we should get rid of daycabs as there is obviously no reason for them to exist. I mean one can't even sleep in one....
No, this is designed as a local delivery truck, maybe regional at worst. No one is holding any illusions as to it's applicability to OTR usage any time soon.
Dale thompson, Rubber duck kw, x1Heavy and 1 other person Thank this.
