OEMs control EV battery specs for the moment, but fleets eventually will be able to specify different chemistries and battery types for their battery-electric trucks based on their needs.
Avoid Repeating Past Inefficiencies: Build the Truck to Match Today’s Application
I asked one fleet manager how he spec’ed replacement trucks for his fleet application. He related that many years earlier an OEM rep spec’ed out his trucks and he has been using the same formula ever since. While this may work in some cases, specifications should be defined by today’s fleet application to ensure the replacement truck is designed to accommodate current operational requirements rather than trying to make your operation conform to trucks spec’ed for yesteryear’s requirements.
