Lorries and busses

Postby bartmanekul » Tue May 22, 2012 1:01 pm

I was just wondering, how feasible is it to have large vehicles becoming EV?

Am I right in thinking that a heavy lorry (carrying a full load) would be insanely expensive due to battery, and unviable charge time?

I also understand that Volvo are working on a hybrid.

Lots of years back Harrods used electric vans.

I recall seeing them :(
