An electric truck startup in California, United States Thor Trucks is set to debut its heavy-duty electric truck in a stiff competition with Tesla's electric semi-truck. It is reportedly planning to release the trucks to the market before Tesla does in 2019.
The ET-One is a very cute electric truck with amazing aerodynamic contours and design generally. It has range of 300 miles on an 80,000 lbs load and will sell for $150,000 upon release.
Thor Trucks is co-founded by Giordano Sordoni and has less employees (just 18) than Tesla. The company already has a working prototype which it intends to push into the market very soon, arguably before Tesla.
Perhaps it's a good move as monopoly would be eliminated with two contenders in the truck segment of the electric vehicle market.
