Most of these obstacles pertain to the use of space, time and money to achieve performance parity with conventionally fueled vehicles. While LDBEV deployments have laid a valuable foundation for anticipating driver behavior, technology shortfalls, utility interface, and charging station operations, the scale of these obstacles for medium- and heavy-duty (MD, HD) fleets makes electrification uniquely complex. This article describes the key challenges of incorporating BEVs into MD and HD fleets.
