Wow. Great video. A generation ahead of anything out there. This will be a hit in Europe. My guess is the battery range will triple in the next three years.

The little 1.6 liter engine being capable of providing more power than would be demanded for driving left me wondering,,,,
He said a range with the genny running of about 600 Km, but at what speed? (35 kph is useless) can this rig maintain highway speeds in the US and what about uphill?
The engine being able to give a recharge to 80% of capacity in 50 minutes seems great.
The designer/builder did seem to have a lot of ideas which could be really useful here.
I had thought before that the most popular option on Musk Cyber truck would probably be for a built in Honda Generator. To get you home after a couple hours charge time.

They did mention that the units were governed to a maximum of 90 km/h for legal reasons, but that some people had hacked them to get top speeds of around 110 km/h. I'd guess the highway performance is similar to one of the old Toyota pickup-based class C motorhomes--slow, but you can get there eventually. Performance around town is likely better.

There were a fair number of nice ideas incorporated; the mini-split air conditioner system and the unified hybrid/EV and house battery system both are things that I'm a bit surprised are not becoming more popular with motorhomes here.
