Pittsburgh-based rail company Wabtec has unveiled the first battery-electric freight train. Dubbed the FLXdrive, this locomotive is a strong first step toward sustainability in railway shipping, an industry that’s responsible for about a quarter of all U.S. transportation emissions. Unfortunately, it’s still just a first step in a very long process.
When it comes to the idea of buying an electric vehicle, range anxiety and the cost and time to recharge are pretty hefty topics. YouTuber MKBHD decided to put a gas vehicle against a Tesla and a Mustang Mach-E in a 1,000-mile road trip. The results are more surprising than you’d think.

Picture this: you’re rolling down the highway pushing 80, windows down, wind blowing through your hair. A shockingly fitting rock track plays through the speakers of your Porsche Taycan, making your life feel like a scene from an action flick.
