    Electric 4x4 mine vehicles, a look at the future?

    From Outback Travel Australia . Electric Landcruisers from three makers. Mainly intended for the mining industry, could they be fore runners of the EV 4x4?

    Ladies, if a man says he will fix it, he will. There is no need to remind him every 6 months about it.

    Surely longer range would come in proportion to demand , and development. Like everything else, nothing happens unless they can see a profit.

    Trade off is weight.

    To carry the capacity with current tech the weight of the battery packs is excessive. Rendering the vehicle useless.

    Iím sure this will change.
