This electric truck startup thinks it can beat Tesla to market

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.


Looks like some effort towards aerodynamics were taken.

Stopped short like all the others we have seen so far.

I'm not sure why that is.

Overton window.

I saw articles in the 1970s that showed pretty much a mid-90s Camaro/Firebird that said that's where we're headed. It looked strange and foreign at the time.

The rear is a bit too steep perhaps.
