Startup 'Thor Trucks' Hopes To Hit Electric Semi Market Before Tesla

By

After Tesla’s long-awaited debut of their all-electric semi, it was expected that other companies would be serving up their own version of Class 8 trucks. Toyota has been busy testing out their hydrogen fuel-cell trucks. A brand new startup out of Los Angeles, Thor Trucks, has also announced their initial semi, the ET-One, and it could be out prior to Tesla’s launch.

The new offering sounds comparable with the lower-end Tesla Semi. It provides a range of 300 miles on each charge while carrying a full load of 80,000 pounds. It would take approximately 90 minutes to fully power the vehicle from depletion. Thor Trucks’ target market is short-haul distances, meaning one full charge per day would be enough to meet the average distances of 250 miles.
