Ok same trucks as the cross country race, but this race is over the Rocky Mountains towing a heavy Tesla car in open trailers.
The winner crushed it.

Here’s the Podcast summary with way more comparison details. It’s a spoiler if you want to watch the race.
Really starting to show EV truck reviews with practical information for anyone considering one.

Only an hour charge to full. Hmm. Your old diesel would have done just as well and fill up in 5 minutes. That said, the performance while pulling seemed pretty impressive.

charging seemed spendy.
City folks probably perfect.
The new electric lawn mowers seems pretty handy

Of course they couldn't wait to get into Starbucks
