Will a battery powered truck that goes 100 miles between charges be practical anywhere?

Will a battery powered truck that goes 100 miles between charges be practical anywhere? Topic: Unemployment application questions

Question: I may have limited imagination on this subject. Does anybody see a good application for this? Will this be a government owned manufacturing plant since the stimulus will be used to finance it? It should help unemployment but these are just some questions I have about it. Elkhart has the highest unemployment in the country. Is he talking about fork trucks? This is planned for Elkhart IN to replace their RV manufacturing. Maybe, but it isn't being promoted that way. A good range for what purpose? DAR: I'm firmly against cap and trade. Where I work, the fork lifts are nauseating when you walk out into the plant. I'm surprised OSHA hasn't clamped down on them. You're right, the emphasis will be on outdoor pollution for cap and trade except within our homes. Extremely intrusive.

Maybe some day. Audi & VW are coming out with hybrid diesels this year that run 100 miles on battery then switch over to diesel for about 20 to charge the battery. That gives you about 120 miles per gallon. It's encouraging and I hope the U.S. can keep up.

Only on facility trucks but to be honest that is an area originally exempt from clean air act reqs so companies have been using emissions savings there to offset growth. They want to take away any place to create savings so the only way to grow would be to leave the country under cap and trade, is the real problem. We already have a lot of this in California. If you like what it has done to our economy, then super, for you. Unfortunately it is absolutely temporary since trucks used only part time turn over very rarely and last long (decades), and trucks used full time can't use the 'have to charge it for hours' approach. It is the kind of green job Spain got one of for every 2.1 lost under their version of cap and trade. It may be better than nothing, I don't know the alternatives that city has.

It would kind of put a damper on road trips. No one in there right mind is going to want to drive anywhere if they have to stop and recharge every 100 miles. Sounds like a ploy by the government to force people to travel by air to save that industry.

Yes. That would work for most delivery services, most residential uses, etc. The average commute is less than 35 miles. [ Based on a ranking of states with the longest average commute-to-work times, the ACS showed that New York (30.4 minutes) and Maryland (30.2 minutes) residents spent the most time traveling to their jobs. New Jersey (28.5 minutes), Illinois (27.0 minutes) and California (26.5 minutes) were also among states with some of the longest one-way commute times. States with some of the lowest average commute times included South Dakota (15.2 minutes), North Dakota (15.4 minutes), Nebraska (16.5 minutes) and Montana (16.9 minutes). (See state rankings [PDF].)] The Right are so funny in their tendency to complain about anything Obama supports.

100 miles is absolutely nothing. What types of so called trucks is this man talking about??? I couldn't even visit my elderly parents........they lived 60 miles away. I do not see any "smart thinking" in this 100 mile mess. Workers cannot get to work and back, deliveries.........nope.........what good I ask is only 100 miles??? Couldn't even go on vacation on 100 miles. PEOPLE USE YOUR BRAINS

There is a device called an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). You can buy them at any office or electronics store. They are pretty large and don't run for a very long time. It would be less attractive than a hole in your bookshelf.
