OK time to hit the reset button, this is a towing forum, so:

1. How much will it tow under SAE J2807? (modified for EVs)
2. How far will it tow it, before recharging?

The two most important questions!!

The rest is all fru fru.


I think everyone is going to have to wait awhile for real numbers. This goes for all the manufacturers. It’s going to be interesting though as at least four manufacturers will be coming out with E trucks all at the same time. My personal feeling is that all will shoot for that F150 tow range. None are shooting for the big numbers from the Cummins or ford diesels. That will probably come later. Still, lots of market room for a truck that can competently tow 8000 pounds 500 or 600 km.

Jmho.


Heres a vid of Tesla semi testing

I count 9 concrete blocks,no idea what each weighs

Don't know how accurate the estimate but the report says it's 75,000 lbs. total.

Toyota and Yanmar have a working prototype fuel cell boat using Marai components.
As a 40 year airplane guy the E Beaver and Harbor Airs short routes are perfect for existing technology. The motor developer flew an E Caravan the other day as well.

How long is short for these EV airplanes?

In my bucket list is being able to fly ultra lights on lawn mower engines.[emoticon]

Sorry guys for the left turn of the thread.

Why are you waiting? Plenty of electric trolling motors and battery choices have been available for years.

Topic deviation makes forums interesting. Otherwise they are a snore fest.

My bucket list is 335 hp cruiser. Are there already electric or battery run motors on this class with enough range to carry us between ports for recharging?

Sorry, I have not looked yet since we are yet to check our list for all national parks and we've not checked anything on the East, NorthEast, Southeast. and Mid-west yet, lol.
