Two takeaways here, first it that their owner is a maniac but his cars still stand on their own. It's just hard to champion anything he's doing right now because he's lost so much credibility in the real world. At the same time we've learned why the cars come off the line with so many flaws and that quality control isn't the employees fault, it's the owner.That is fair, I guess I shouldn't have been surprised with that response from the audience here. 500 miles, fully loaded is a big deal for electrification of trucking. I guess folks here will be happy when it is Mercedes (or Volvo) doing it (assuming they don't have a 500 mile electric Semi truck in the wings).
The other is this semi, while 500 miles is great, how do they go about charging and/or battery replacement. If the market is short-haul only then I see the appeal but those who go the distance can get up to 1500 per fill and asking them to change that dynamic to stop and charge every 500 miles seems like it would be a challenge.
