    Not from them I don't think. Nikola will be there competition, and also has deep pockets backing it.[​IMG]

    If they are reliable enough it won't be long till it's necessary to move the electric grid onto and into the road itself, or at least alongside it, like HOV lanes. electric grid interstate lanes would negate range limitations, and driver jobs would shift to something akin to a locomotive operator, if not completely autonomous. Those army MOSs where kids fly drones on the other side of the planet from a gaming station...that job will be coming to private logistics once they get the grid built. MAGA!!!

    Yeah u check into an office space with monitors and u can navigate the truck from thousands of miles away. Then u do your quota for the day lets say 1 truck per hour. Then clock out go home while a night crew takes over. Truck could in theory go for 24 hours.
