    There really is a craze at the moment for semi-trailers electrical. And Tesla has certainly helped in launching his truck this fall.

    Today, it is the turn of Thor Trucks to begin in the arena. In fact, the start-up company in california in English (the startup) has just unveiled the AND-one, a semi-trailer that promises to browse 483 kilometers with a single charge, and able to take up to 36, 000 kilograms.

    In terms of design, AND-One of Thor’s Truck is similar to that of Tesla. However, we note that this startup has focused on a development of conventional cab rather than to position the driver in the center to increase the visibility.

    As you can read on this small company with big ambitions has only 18 employees at this time. Despite its large pips on the plan of delivery, Tesla has all of the same administrative structure more in-depth.

    In addition, Thor Trucks also took the opportunity to present the awards, which are generally less advantageous than those developed by Tesla. For the version with a range of 483 kilometers, the price rises to $ 320,000. For the equivalent on the side of Tesla, we are talking about a price of $ 190,000. A gap that is not negligible.

    It is also expected that a version offering a range of 160 kilometres, will be launched at a price of $ 190,000.

    In addition, we should also remember that Cummins had also announced last summer that it was going to be a player in the sector of semi-trailers electrical.
