It’s easy to make wild claims on paper.

Chances are a truck with such wonderful specs will end up costing $150,000. Let’s see how many takers it gets at that price.

Yes, and that range is going to assume NO load on the vehicle and in ideal conditions. Most people would see half that.

When they start putting rapid charging stations at every interchange on the interstates that can fully recharge the truck in 5 minutes, somebody call me. Until then, ICE for the win.

I agree that range and charge times are the downfalls of electric vehicles.
I would accept a real world range of 400+ miles. That would also make the recharge times easier to accept.
I was reading an article about Solid State batteries in development by a university here in the US. Tesla is partnering with them and the article was saying it would increase the Tesla range to around 700 miles. Solid state batteries charge much faster and don’t have the risks of lithium.
Give them a couple years.
If I could put a big ole motor in place of my engine and get 400 to 500 real world miles I would have to seriously consider it. Especially if it could be done for less than $6K or $7K.
