Question Compact Electric Trucks (Availability, specs, prices)

My ideal compact electric truck wish list:
55MPH, 50-100 miles on charge, 2 or more passengers.
Planned use: DIY building material hauling over the road and medium range travel in NY and NJ. Would be registered in NY. Full length roofrack would be nice.

I have seen the Miles and Vantage Greentruck at the VA Hospital and they would be great if the 25MPH speed were increased to a safe road speed.

Any suggestions? Any links?

A couple of years ago I looked for a vehicle that would be appropriate for my energy related business. I was very disappointed in what was out there. I decided to wait for the hybrid concept to mature. Still waiting. As an interim measure I have considered having a vehicle converted to propane, the advantage for me being range. Just seems battery technology needs something different.

I think hydrogen technology will supersede electric vehicles. We know it will work, it has no emissions, the gas manufacturers hate it, politicians won't get much of a kickback from it, car makers don't know what to do..............what else good can we expect??
Until then, I'll run my non carbon monoxide emitting, Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins at 15 mpg to haul stuff.

TESLA produces EV cars that far exceed the Chevy Volt. Also, prices are excessive and speeds over 75MPH are not something that should justify a high price. Unfortunately Tesla does not appear interested in producing utility vehicles.
