Electrification of Heavy Trucks

Using electric trucks not only reduces fuel consumption but also saves energy costs. These trucks maximize power consumption and reduce the use of liquid fuel. So they reduce the overall energy cost by 29 to 44 percent.  For example, for electric delivery trucks, short stops at delivery sites provide enough time to recharge the battery, so high-power charging is not required.
