      Actually, i take that back. Total weight was around 80,000. They still weren't saying how much weight the batteries made up vs. payload. But there's no engine so you lose that weight. Still a lot of questions surrounding electric Class 8.

      Same as typical Cascadia Class 8. This one was fully loaded up just below 80,000 lbs., if I recall correctly.

      They already have the good will of the trucking industry on their side. Tesla just has California on their side. I hope Freightliner can do it .
