    While the new electric truck from EV Fleet sounds nice I hope it doesn’t end up being more vapor ware.
    Following the links to the original article on Inside EV’s they give a better description on the specs and etc. But down in the comments there is a discussion on how their chief engineer Agnew has been involved in some very shady projects, and that it is difficult (or impossible) to track down verification of his education degrees. It also seems that he has been a proponent of the hollow earth theory, and at one time was raising funds for an exploratory trip to the north pole to find the entrance.
    Well maybe that was just the vagaries of youthful enthusiasm, let’s hope so, because a light duty delivery truck that runs on electricity will really help make a difference in our city and urban environments
