All-electric short-haul: TransPower wants to electrify the short-haul drayage market. Its ElecTruck drive system includes dual electric motors, a modular 270 kWh Li-ion battery, and a five speed transmission. Eight of these heavy weights will be put into drayage service at the Ports of LA and Long Beach, California, by the end of the year.

The Research Association of Automotive Internal Combustion Engines is aiming to bring the efficiency up to 50%. Even the EV-loving Japanese seem to think that combustion engines will not be pushed off the streets anytime soon.
