Thanks to companies like Tesla, BMW and others, electric passenger vehicles are slowly gaining market share. Electrified heavy duty trucks, on the other hand, have been much slower to gain traction. Though battery technology is now available to power many of these vehicles, the technology — and infrastructure at scale — is lacking to make efficient electrified long-haul trucking a reality. What hurdles exist to the mass adoption of battery powered freight, and is another technology breakthrough on the horizon that could fast-track widespread adoption? Could a new ballot measure generate the momentum necessary for technological innovation and continue the fight for clean air? Come learn more.
