What if Smokey and the Bandit had a refrigerated trailer with a reclamation system to power the cooler? Well for one thing, the beer would’ve arrived cold. Turns out there’s a company working on e-trailers that work with electric trucks to create power from the axles. Not sure if they’re Smokey and the Bandit fans, but they MUST be beer fans. Also, Ford scales back its SEMA presence (so does Honda), F150 Lightning production begins, and Nikola actually beat Tesla to a big rig. All that in episode 122, plus we go into the mail bag.
