   SURE until the battery runs out of JUICE and the "tortise" passes the "hare" LOL Until "perpetual motion" is developed , electric power can't "go the distance" on batteries alone compared to an internal combustion engine. Locomotives use electric motors but have a diesel powered generator to supply electricity.

I don't doubt electric vehicles will be the future.  Just not my future.  Notice how you never see mention of, "cost of ownership."  Or, God forbid, depreciation.

Last week I sold my '98 F150 4.6, 5-speed, 4WD.  Purchase price new was $19K.  Sold in excellent running condition for $2100 with 261,000 miles.  Other than tires, brakes, front wheel bearing hubs, starter, alternator, muffler and head gasket it had no major repairs.  If those items repair items cost $5K, then less fuel my cost of ownership was $0.12/mile.  So how will an electric vehicle  compare to that?

  Wait until the "tree huggers" have to find a place to put the dead batteries. Can't be a "land fill" or dump them in the ocean we've already done that. Green has it's consequences LMAO. I'll stick to ICEs.

I could use one to transport my 55 gal. drums of 93 Premium to run my "vintage fuel" vehicles and generator for night charging.  Unfortunately, instead of a macho sound on acceleration, it will probably whine a lot. 8)

To me its not power or speed but duration. It takes me 15 hrs to drive approx 1000 miles only stopping for gas and food. Now if a Battery powered truck can deck that and be affordable then OK.  Obtainable? maybe someday but Im not holding my breath waiting.

  You drive a hundred or so miles and stop (IF you can find a place) and charge the battery for hours to drive another hundred or so. DOUBLES the length of time to go a thousand miles! But you were GREEN all the way.
 The earth is on a billion year path to become hotter than Venus ( where "rain" is MOLTEN METAL). NOTHING we do today can stop it unless "we" move the Earth's orbit further out ( but not too far) . Saw that on the Science Channel last night ( has to be true) LOL.
