Europe-based E.ON electric charging station network is feating the BigFoot #20 all-electric monster truck in its recent ad campaign. This raises a question: does it make sense to electrify everything, even monster trucks? Electrification of every-day trucks and passenger vehicles makes sense, but the deafening roar of blown monster truck V8 engine is an essential part of the truck jumping and car crashing experience.
The BigFoot #20 was originally unveiled in 2012, and it is energized by 30 separate batteries. Six additional batteries power the steering and brake systems.
Have you seen the electric monster truck in action? Let us know what you think about electrification of pickup trucks in general: be it hybrids, generator electric, or hydrogen fuel-cell.
This is no monster truck, and it’s not electric – but this diesel-powered EarthRoamer XV-HD is another kind of monster at 35-feet long and 13.5-feet tall.
