Academics at it again: Electric trucks 'can compete with diesel ones'

Academics at it again:  Electric trucks 'can compete with diesel ones’.  This appears to be true if:
  • Operated for 4.5 hrs and then charged for 40 minutes on a high-powered device
  • Somebody invents the charger (commercial fast charger doesn't yet exist)
  • And there is enough power in the grid.  For example, the head of Toyota indicated Japan didn’t have enough power to run all electric cars.  Oops!
 
Contrary to earlier reports that Panasonic would buy the 80% of BlueYonder it doesn’t already own, the news is now they will go public.
