  3. Detail the costs of running an EV truck vs ICE over say the life of the battery

    JC,
    We need to start with a level playing field and that’s not happening. Mass exemptions for ev trucks in the EU being one example. Then there are the subsidies which will no doubt be on offer.
    The market, far from being free, is being heavily skewed in favour of ev vehicles.

  4. There’s also the additional cost of maintaining the motor and engine of a EV truck and ICE one. What would they be?

    Study Calculates EVs Have Higher ‘Real World Refueling Cost’ Than Gas Vehicles

    Another irony:

    The firm, established in 2015, posted a blog entry entitled “Exploring Lithium-ion Electric Vehicles’ Carbon Footprint” this week, where they call into question a former ICE vs. EV comparison performed by the Wall Street Journal and, while citing work performed by Jefferies, argue that there could literally be “no reduction in CO2 output” in some EV vs. ICE comparisons.

    Their analysis “details the tremendous amount of energy (and by extension CO2) needed to manufacture a lithium-ion battery.” Because a typical EV is on average 50% heavier than a similar internal combustion engine, the analysis notes that the “embedded carbon” in an EV (i.e., when it rolls off the lot) is therefore 20–50% more than an internal combustion engine

  11. The truck problem is this. Trucks make their money carrying as much freight as possible. There are legal limits on how much for good reasons, safety and road damage the major ones. Current single trailer semi’s can carry around 22 tonne of freight. Battery vehicles seem to use around half of the mass of a vehicle to propel it at high speed for about 500kms.

    Now a car is fine, it may have a few passengers and a few bags, say 250kg? So a Tesla weighs 2t, half is batteries at 1t, throw in 250kgs and it’s not too much extra.

    A 42t truck will need about 20t of batteries to run at 100kps for 500kms, heavy vehicles are heavy in themselves without the freight, a truck trailer will come in at around 20 tonne, and have a 20 tonne payload. A battery truck will weigh around 17 tonne, throw in 20 tonne of battery and you can carry 5(?) tonne. That’s it, a quarter of a normal load. even if battery trucks cost almost nothing to run and maintain their profits will be small, they just can’t carry enough weight.

    I’m trying to be optimistic with these figures, throw in stinking hot summers cold winters 300,000kms+ a year, I can see new batteries needed around every twelve months. It just can’t work in the foreseeable future.

    exactly.

    Current tech LiIon is thousands of discharge cycles… and a truck would want to do full discharges all the time, probably 2 or more cycles per day; cf. a commuter car, which might discharge to 70% of capacity for a typical workday.

    For a truck running 7 days/week, that’s only 5 or less years life.

    Joh, cars & trucks will be totally different animals.

    Charging time & battery weight mean commercial trucks (i.e. prime movers) will have “quick change” slide-in slide-out, exchangeable battery packs that will get a couple of hundred km.
    Electric trucks will thus be limited to routes dotted with these exchange stations.

  27. Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest cops surprise blast at his own press event
    By Peter Milne and Hamish Hastie
    October 31, 2022 — 5.28pm

    A Pilbara Aboriginal elder used a welcome to country ceremony to berate iron ore miner Fortescue and its founder Andrew Forrest for a lack of opportunities for her Nyamal people on Fortescue’s under-construction Iron Bridge project.

    Former Aboriginal elder of the year and Nyamal woman Aunty Doris Mitchell-Eaton’s impassioned speech was a surprise start to the ceremonial opening of the incomplete mine in the Pilbara on Monday in front of WA Deputy Premier Roger Cook and media flown in for the day as well as Forrest.

    Traditional owner Doris Mitchell-Eaton hijacked the welcome to country to lament the lack of involvement of her local people in the Iron Bridge project.

    Mitchell-Eaton immediately began levelling criticism at Forrest and FMG for not giving Nyamal Aboriginal Corporation-linked mining organisations the opportunity to work on the $US3.8 billion Iron Bridge, which is expected to become fully operational next year.

    “Good morning everyone and welcome to this lovely place that’s getting destroyed. Our Country. So beautiful,” she said.

    Mitchell-Eaton claimed that when traditional owners and Forrest first signed an agreement to mine the land they were given assurances that Nyamal people would be employed, but they have since been told no because they “didn’t have the capability”.

    “Give us the opportunity to build that capability, to mine our country,” she said and referred to a Nyamal company not being given a chance to help build Iron Bridge.

    “I’m standing here as a proud Nyamal, it’s hurt my feelings to see every people coming in here digging in our country and we haven’t got an opportunity.”

    Mitchell-Eaton said her people were not against mining but wanted traditional owners to have the final say on mining projects.

    She called on Forrest to set up a meeting with her to discuss the issues.

    “Give us this good opportunity, we want to build this capability. That’s the word I learned from FMG because FMG knocked us back with Nyamal mining. ‘You haven’t got capability’,” she said.

    “I’m coming, Andrew. I want to set up a meeting. I’m coming with the capability.”

    Mitchell-Eaton was given a last-minute opportunity to perform the welcome to country ceremony after telling Forrest she wanted to speak.

    Forrest has known Mitchell-Eaton for more than 40 years and when he took to the stage after her impassioned speech he railed against Indigenous people being “held back by even the best-intentioned bureaucrats,” an issue Mitchell-Eaton had not mentioned.

    “If we cover people with welfare, with drugs and alcohol, remove the planks of support … and burden them with low expectations,” then the life of Indigenous people would not improve, Forrest said.

    “If we remove the planks and support to make sure they can drive their own sustainability, they can drive their own independence, and we don’t burden them with low expectations then what Aunty Doris said will come true every single time.

    “We’ve fought like cats against the useless handout mentality.”

    Forrest said Iron Bridge had included $68 million worth of agreements to Indigenous people and for Indigenous work since the project began. FMG said it had awarded $285 million worth of work to Nyamal businesses.

    After Mitchell-Eaton had demanded a meeting with Forrest, the billionaire countered with the offer of a joint trip east to speak to Prime Minister Anthony Albanese as well as employment and training ministers.

    I’ll bet good money that that’s the last “Welcome to Country” that Twiggy Forrest ever lays on!

    One mob here have an interesting idea.
    Swappable battery units.

    In the linked article Janus announce their first “fleet” of electric converted trucks.

    That was in April.

    That “fleet” of Kenworth, Freightliner, Mack, Volvo and Western Star is now short of a Kenworth. Nowhere in Janus’ literature or website is there mention of this. However “Truck & Bus” magazine have an article in July:

    Investigations continue after battery fire destroys electric truck

    The article is about the Tuggerah Fire Brigade managing to extinguish a fire that “just broke out” in a prime mover standing in the yard of Janus Electric Pty Ltd.
    & how the fire brigade managed to prevent too much damage when the fire spread to other trucks standing nearby.

    There’s not much left of (what presumably is) the Kenworth.

    You are far from fine, you’re off your meds or something.
    You’re not normal.

    Seriously Driller, I’ve never witnessed a more disgusting display of filthy sheets. You ought be arrested for impersonating a motel employee.

    This is a comment on how hygienic your bedroom is? Quite believable, if your online conduct is anything to go by, your sheets would be filthy.

    You ought be arrested for impersonating a motel employee.

    That would be fair enough, had I ever claimed to be a motel employee.

  70. Oic, the site’s Joe Biden is on another sly references to doxxing.
    We’re all factor workers, motel employees, bread truck drivers, typists, or whatever.
    Joe Biden is pretending he knows who we all are.

    Keep licking that ice cream (it’s much safer than licking your sheets)

    I’m not doxxing at all, but why would you have a problem with doxing when you’re lying your fat arse off to cover for a plagiarist, you old drunken fraud. Go burn those dirty sheets, you lazy bludger

    Yet you make constant reference to it.

    but why would you have a problem with doxing

    Total mystery.

    you’re lying your fat arse off to cover for a plagiarist

    I’ve no idea what you’re on about

    you old drunken fraud.

    You’re looking into a mirror when you say that.

    Go burn those dirty sheets,

    Has your maid jacked up on it? Not my job to burn your soiled laundry.

    you lazy bludger

    Again, looking into the mirror.

    You’re not a nice person. You have much to atone for before you meet the maker, a day that ever draws nearer. Suggest you start mending your ways, or get used to the concept of eternal torment.

  73. How religious of you driller. I’ve never seen the spiritual, holy man routine from you. Keep it up as it’s a nice foundational look, but pity you’re a deceitful old fraud.

  74. I’ve never seen the spiritual, holy man routine from you.

    This may be a clue as to how little you know about others.

    pity you’re a deceitful old fraud.

    Yet there is not one thing on which I’ve ever been deceitful or fraudulent about. Perhaps you’re judging others by your own standard?
    A common mistake.
    IIRC you did claim to be a banker or something, deceit & fraud would be admirable qualities to you.

  75. Furious Western Sydney leaders are calling for an urgent meeting with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese — accusing him of pressing ahead with the resettlement of ISIS families into their neighbourhoods without enough community consultation.
    State MPs and local and community leaders have banded together to slam Mr Albanese’s push to bring back about 60 women and children who lived as a part of the Islamic State during its torturous regime in Syria and Iraq.

    State Labor MP for Fairfield Guy Zangari broke ranks to criticise his federal counterpart Chris Bowen and the Commonwealth for leaving his community in the dark.

    “The fact that this is happening is very triggering to them … The community should be brought along for the broader discussion so they aren’t being left out,” he said.

    “They have every right to feel that way because of the treatment at the hands of ISIS in Syria and Iraq. They deserve to be involved in conversations.

    There’s probably a niche for them on the docks and with very local work, particularly carrying large volume/low mass freight.

    Like the ports which are still congested in the US because older trucks are being refused admission to the docks?
    So how’s the congestion going?
    (The ports, 132 – not yours.)

  78. Position Statement: Currently we’re positioned for two days in the Panhandle of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico. I am sitting here with an open door to our balcony overlooking the pool in a holiday resort in a place called Panama City Beach. Outside I can hear the gentle shoosh of the sea shore and it could almost be that I am on board the cruise once more. It’s not sticky here as on the Cocoa Beach side and the temperature outside is mild at night. It was a six hour drive to get here along freeways all the way. Hairy drove and I was navigator, traffic monitor, driving adviser (lol), nurse (he has a sore throat), and provider of comforts on the road. Another Strepsil, dear?

    Florida’s narrow strip (looking like the handle of a pan base of the rest of it) is just below Alabama (Montgomery is just above us here) and Georgia. We’re heading slowly towards Louisiana. It’s all a geography lesson for me. The only drama was a convoy of oversize vehicles taking up two of the three lanes, preceded by a sheriff’s car plus another, and followed up in the rear by a further car and sheriff’s car, lights flashing everywhere. Oh, and tonight in town Hairy did an illegal u-turn followed by a police car .. oops. But they were simply doing the same thing and ignored us!

    you know what pisses me off, I am still banned from traveling virtually anywhere because I refuse to submit to a genetic experiment of dubious motives.
