Thor’s ET-One semi truck could hit the road before Tesla’s semi, and it’s definitely no slouch. This electric truck has a 300-mile range (full charge takes 90-minutes from empty), 70mph top speed, a full load capacity of 80,000 pounds, and will be priced from $150,000. The company expects the ET-One to be available sometime in 2019, and limited fleet demos are now available in the US. continue reading for more pictures and information.
“The ET-One is no static concept. The co-founders recently demonstrated its towing capacity in a short drive around LA, pulling around 60,000 pounds of cargo. And they hope to test the Class 8 load limit of 80,000 pounds soon. That said, Thor says it will build a scaled-down, medium duty truck, too, which will be good for short hauls between a port and an urban center,” according to The Verge.
