Now thats probably the words biggest plug in hybrid, only has to go about 4km, uses 10.5kv charging, think they said 150kw charging with 3 phase power at its locations.
No reason to run the diesel engine really, except maybe as emergency backup.
Pays for its self in 8 years, should last at least 15 years.

^^ ~ 6 MW peak charging (10 kV, 600 Amps); 14 minutes charging each r/t.
About 550 kWh each way.

The engineer mentioned Li-X batteries cycled between 40 and 65% SoC to have 5 years of use. Charging and discharging at 1.5 C all day long is tough on the battery. I'm surprised they hold up that well.
