500 miles range at 80,000 pounts payload is bonkers. The video of it passing a diesel on an incline is too.

I know there's not enough minerals to make batteries for everybody to have electrics, but this is possibly a game changer until we run out of battery materials, and the batteries are only getting better. Do this with hydrogen fuel cells or w/e. the platform is the big deal, battery tech will come and go!
