And just how many electric alternatives are there that can equal the towing capacity and torque of a diesel truck?
There are motors that can do it and even exceed the torque of a diesel engine.
But there is no power source that will give a usable amount of power before recharge.
But an electric truck is much easier to start when its -30 in Chicago. The heater will kill the battery before your out of the parking lot but eh, that’s just a technicality.
