    Great AAH……

    Ed is exactly right the big push to develop an EV truck will turn out to be a huge bust. EVs are great for inner city local trips. Using a truck to tow or haul and the range becomes so pitiful that buyers are going to be hugely dissatisfied.

    Hate to be critical of Ed as he was a great guest but he needs to work on his public speaking to reduce the use of Ummm’s and Ahhhh space fillers makes listening to him difficult. Which is a shame because what he is saying is great insight.

    Lambo, I agree, and found myself fast forwarding through some of his dialogue, but he does seem knowledgeable and worthy of being a guest. To me, he sounded just like in the old days of AM radio call-in shows when the callers would start their comment then hear themselves on the radio (with the delay), and start stammering. The radio host would come on and say, “please turn down your radio”, and they would start talking fine. I wonder if Ed had some delay in his headphone/ear buds?
