The problem is that trucking companies need to get a good return on their investment which can, and very often does, mean two drivers and the truck running all day.

The problem then becomes how do they charge the batteries in the time it would normally take to fill the diesel tanks?

Electric delivery vans might be OK, after all we had them in the 60s delivering milk but I just don't see how electric long haul trucks can be economically viable.
