    That new flow battery looks promising for commercial trucks, not so much for consumer autos. I really like this idea for trucks as we need a “quick charge” option for the trucking industry. While Proterra and BYD already have solutions for BEV public transit buses, they travel much shorter distances, with frequent stops, thus 100-260 mile range being plenty, whether that be charging overnight or quick charging at stops. Commercial trucks need to be able to travel much longer distances as an average might be 500 miles per day. This is where I’d like to see flow batteries applied.

      I too don’t see the need for flow batteries in EVs. I’d rather have the option to charge at home than make detours to a filling station on a regular basis.

    Glad the show is back!
