But there’s help. With the right partners and planning, you can conquer your range anxiety and have the confidence that your electric trucks can deliver loads in applications that they’re suited for, namely shorter routes, under 150 miles, and last-mile or regional-haul duty cycles. To draw a parallel to the diesel trucks you’re currently management, you can equate EV range to “fuel” efficiency, to some degree. The same factors that impact your diesel fuel efficiency, such as driver behavior, can impact your range.
