Jon Fingas on diesel truck engine maker Cummins:
The engine giant Cummins has unveiled a concept semi truck, the AEOS, that runs entirely on the power of an electric motor and a 140kWh battery pack. It’s roughly as powerful as a 12-liter fossil fuel engine and could haul 44,000 pounds of cargo, just without the emissions or rampant fuel costs of a conventional truck.
That’s a watershed moment in trucking. 1-hour charging, solar panels, but a 100-mile range. For now.
