The StarShip has Launched

We are in downtown Atlanta inside of the Georgia World Congress at the TMC show with the StarShip. We had no time for testing or shakedown runs before this show, so we had an 1000 mile initial run.

Awesome...

I was ready to make the 5 hour trip to see the truck in person.

That was up until I saw how much they want for the privilege of
attending their conference...

Non-member $850...


I'll pass...

Awesome! You gonna tell us what kind of fuel economy it got on that trip, or is that still proprietary information at the moment? Glad to see it happen! Now start displacing those bricks on the highways!

Okay, wow. Yeah, I saw Atlanta in the first post and got excited. That makes me a lot less excited.

Gentlemen thanks for all of the kind words on the new truck.

It only took 3 years and 18,000 build hours.

Yeah, sorry. We cannot release that info until our coast-to-coast run in May.
