These battery-operated vehicles just aren't ready for prime time. IMO they're wonderful for the early-adopters to play with - if they have charging facilities at home. They can charge them up in their garages and then go out and drive around for 100 or 150 miles in the cold and then drive them back to the garage for another overnight charge. But for commercial drivers who drive hundreds of miles per day in all temperatures, time is money. Battery-operated cars may improve with time, but they're not ready yet. Probably another decade, I would think, until the charging infrastructure is adequate and the technology has improved to give acceptable ranges in all weather conditions and acceptable recharge times.
