You’re correct that battery swapping stations COULD be feasible for short-haul and last-mile heavy duty transport (though it raises Fishing Stars Planets Space Astronaut Fisherman T-shirt own set of questions and problems). Long haul I don’t see it, just because of the infrastructure costs and the fact that it would basically be a mechanic service every few hundred miles, which can take significant time (unlike, say, $NIO, which can have you hot swapping a car battery in 5-10 minutes), but I posit to you this: If we agree that batteries and swapping stations are not feasible for transcon transport or heavy machinery runs, and you’re the purchaser for a transport fleet, which solution are you going to pick?

Best Fishing Stars Planets Space Astronaut Fisherman T-shirt
One solution that may have been overlooked is putting the batteries in the trailer. Most freight loads don’t reach the max gross Fishing Stars Planets Space Astronaut Fisherman T-shirt weight of 80k in the US. With drop and hook runs tractors can run on their own power for dead head miles and then plug into the trailer for the paid miles. Since the bobtail (unhitched tractor) is already swapping the entire trailer then charging can be accomplished while it’s being loaded and or waiting on a lot. The extra time for drop and hook is already priced in. Likely no reason that the ev trailer cannot be used with ice power units other than opportunity cost. I’m sure there is a reason why they haven’t considered this as well and likely the same as you described above and also thank you for replying. If feel the wrinkle growing and I also feel really special.
