Yes of course but I had to point out to those crowing about "huge increases" in the sales of EVs that 180 percent of almost nothing is still almost nothing. Not that I'm against EVs as I think their future is bright especially after oil truly declines in availability and gas rises past $5.00 a gallon and rises towards $10.00
I just don't appreciate the presenting of figures in a way intended to persuade the careless reader that they mean much more then the facts support.
As to thinking of the possibilities let's have someone design and build a plug in 50 HP tractor that can work twelve hours a day during planting and harvesting seasons. The machine should weigh five to seven thousand pounds and probably would have to swap out battery banks two or three times a day to do that. Perhaps the battery packs would be towed or carried behind for quick attachment with the tillage tools mounted in front for operator visibility.
