"The view that battery-powered heavy goods lorries can't compete with diesel is
being challenged by new research.
It had been felt that the extra batteries needed for freight would make
electric vehicles too expensive.
But a new study says that if fast charging networks are built for trucks, then
they can beat diesel in terms of cost.
With fast charging, the bigger the vehicle, the greater the advantage for
electric, say researchers."
