Just recently, major companies, cities, and countries have committed to 100% electric vehicles within a couple decades. However, there are more than 100M light-medium duty vehicles on U.S. roads and just 3% have any form of electric drive (2% hybrid, 1% plug-in), and those are all cars. How do we get from here to there? Fortunately, appealing electric cars are now being introduced and their sales will mushroom over the coming decade. But, almost no light-medium duty trucks are electrified. Yet, in some cases, electric drive may be better suited to the tasks assigned. Actually, electric drives may be better suited to trucks than cars.
