Can anything stop the rise of electric vehicles?

Researchers Venkat Viswanathan and Shashank Sripad from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, estimate that a 600-mile range Tesla truck could carry only two-thirds of the average payload of cargo, highlighting the need for further technological improvements in battery capabilities before electric trucks are commercially viable. Fraunhofer scientists hope to increase battery range in EVs to 620 miles. Innovation will provide the key to longer range capabilities at a competitive price point.
