You might want to rethink that, current technology builds popular rechargeable off-road vehicles capable of wide-open throttle for more than a hour at a time.Sure, but growing up in a logging family, there is no way I could have worked with today's battery tech back then. Large saws for felling, WOT for 45 minutes easy out of each and every hour. Landscaping is one thing. Making raw materials for building homes is another.
I'd like to see a move towards battery powered stuff, yes, despite the waste stream and other issues. But chemical ICE energy is the only viable tech at the moment for many applications. I think there will be broad cutouts for those areas. And it's CA, home of the manicured lawns and eyebrows in the desert.
