    I watched the entire thing. I'll wait at least a couple years to see how it goes.

    Not hating but didnt they say this was going to happen like 4 years ago? I don't see any msrp mentioned during this circle jerk.

    Not too many Owner Ops can run a daycab that takes a megawatt to charge. Takes its own substation.

    Now don't you know there ain't no blind side backing? That thing will go over there & get in dock 28 all by itself.

    500 mile range is under perfect conditions, no wind, mild temperatures. Probably get 1/2 that range under winter conditions.
