Electric trucks are becoming more and more popular as the years go on. They offer many benefits that diesel trucks cannot, such as lower emissions and less noise pollution. The first big step in electric trucks was the Tesla Semi, which is being released to the public at the end of this year. But other companies have already released their version of an electric truck for commercial use.
Below are some examples of trucks already on the market, as well as ones coming out soon:
Nissan Titan XD
The Nissan Titan XD comes with a 5-year warranty and up to 100,000 miles/160,000 kilometers (whichever occurs first). This engine has strong power train components like steel specifically added to strengthen its performance. Its powerful V8 gas engine earns 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque; it can tow up to 12,200 pounds. It also contains an idle-stop system (like the one used in the Tesla Model 3) that shuts off four of its eight cylinders when idling. It costs around $55,000.
The Tesla Semi is a new double-decker electric truck that will have a 500-mile range and a 0 to 60 time of 5 seconds. This will be one of the most technologically advanced vehicles ever made. The engine is said to have a power output similar to two V8 engines combined, which means it has an insane amount of torque. There are two models available: one with 300 miles/482 kilometers range, and another with 500 miles/804 kilometers range. The 300-mile version can go from zero to sixty in just 20 seconds. It is set to be released at the end of this year and will cost around $150,000.

The 350 kWh pack has an estimated 125 miles/201 kilometers, while the 700 kWh pack has an estimated range of 250 miles/402 kilometers. It can also be plugged into a DC fast charger, which will give it an 80% charge in just 90 minutes. The top speed is limited to 65 mph to conserve energy, but it can still haul up to 77,000 pounds. It costs $200,000 .

As cities around the world work to reduce emissions and improve their environment, electric trucks are becoming more mainstream. They are efficient, inexpensive to maintain, and are less noisy than traditional gasoline or diesel engines. It looks like in the future they will become more popular as battery technology advances rapidly. This means that there will come a day when electric trucks take over the roads entirely.
