This thread reminds me of those attending "climate summits" for many years by private jets from all over the planet only to be scurried back and forth by a caravan of 13 mpg Chevy Suburbans to tell everyone else to CURB YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT. By the time I read the news story, they had already...
Go ahead and make the rule now, and watch 1000's of pictures pop up on social media of Giga Texas using hundreds of diesel powered engines to build it.
Pictures of Elon flying every other day on a horrible, petrol jet.
Pictures of SpaceX flying to the ISS using petroleum.

"Lordstown says the Endurance will be able to drive 250 mile one a single charge, but it’s unclear how that figure will be affected when towing a substantial payload."
Spending $20k to $40k more and the best ICE truck that they have thrown everything conceivably possible into, and it still can't compete in even a single category.
And we haven't even started talking about oil changes, air filters, brake pads, general maintenance, etc.
