Shake 'em off

You've kind of got it backwards. EV systems generally run hot as fuck. The tech is best for trucks, truck guys are too insecure to buy HV/EV's. There were hybrid Tundra rumors flaoting around a few years back, the story went that they couldn't keep driveshafts in them.With EV torque and lack of cooling issues, it always seemed natural to me that we should be seeing them as SUVs and Trucks instead of tiny cars going 150 miles. But I guess that's the tech and battery improvements taking time

Oh, yeah. It's fucking kickass, but good luck convincing some coal rolling asshole that a whisper quiet electric truck is a better option.I was mostly thinking about towing limitations where in short runs a gas or diesel truck can do a lot but get limited by regulations with cooling and whatnot.
What?I thought EVs ran hot requiring a big cooling system but didn't really change??? == Great towing platform with all that downlow torque???

Reasonably correct, I misunderstood what you were referencing when you said "lack of cooling issues"
I don't know a lot about the details. @Belobog it's pretty educated on it. But I do know cold makes the range suffer currently.Havent looked too much into EVs but aren't cold climates supposed to be a stumbling block? From the batteries struggling in the cold, to charging problems and power to the brakes and such
Ummm, a half ton truck that does the work of a 3/4 is a 3/4...
I also kind of wish people would purge that meaningless term from their vocabulary, but I digress.
Yes, sort of. Personally, I think HV would be a better solution than EV assuming you're talking about EV's in the sense we're used to them (like a Tesla)Derpy derpy. You're requiring me to be extra choosy with my words to make a point.
Plug EV into existing platform and the truck gets better. Mostly through towing.
