The Current and Future Performance and Costs of Battery Electric Trucks

  • Principal Investigator Lewis Fulton, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
This white paper will review the key literature and estimates, attempt to understand the reason for differences and resolve these, undertake sensitivity analysis and a “final” robust analysis with conclusions about the best applications of BETs and where they may be very challenged to replace diesels.
