I thought the most interesting part was that both drivers were named "Dude". When my son was a teenager, all his friends were named "Dude" also.


Darn, that's funny. All my daughter's male friends called each other Dog.

Its all in the battery size. We need battery technology to make a giant leap where we can fit two to many times the energy in the same space.

And to decrease charging refueling times to a total of 20 minutes inline with ICE vehicles.

So are these ICE trucks, or Hybrid trucks or full electric trucks? Sorry I have a tough time watching most Youtube videos as they want to talk and talk and talk aiming for that magic 20 minute mark instead of just giving you the information.

I had no idea RAM had an electric truck.
Does Cummins make just the electric motors or the batteries too?

You might to go 29.45 and see how the vote goes and then see who they say the winner is at about 30.05.
Sorry Time. They said Ram/Cummins won......I guess you could say the write in vote won and Ram/Cummins wasn't even in the race!

But no worries. The 621 mile 500KWH Semi is finally going to come out in about 6 weeks. [emoticon][emoticon][emoticon]
Or is it? [emoticon][emoticon][emoticon]...Time will tell......[emoticon]

What gets me is why people get their undies in such a tight knot over trivial stuff like a few miles an hour going up a hill a lot will either avoid or never see. It's like sports, why people pay so much money to see games. Games were invented during the Roman times to keep the minds of the peasants from thinking how bad the times were becoming while the aristocrats were dining on fine foods and booze. As long as your tow vehicle gets you there and back, why add the ego factor just to try and outdo the Jones and Smiths.
