If you allow this and consider that the Tesla Semi and probably other trucks will use super single wheels on the back of the truck you will likely be doing a bit more damage to the roads than traditional trucks. Frankly, we have enough difficulty keeping our roads in decent shape as it is.
My opinion is that BEV trucking needs to "pull its own weight" in this regard. This is a huge market and it will take time to replace the existing fleets of the world. Even if we could build BEV trucks at a very rapid pace (and we can't), we would find that we would not be able to keep up with the electricity demand such a fleet of trucks would create.
Let's keep our clean trucks within weight and let them compete on a level playing field. They can grow into the longer-range routes as battery technology and/or charging infrastructure improves. In the meantime, they can dominate routes where they offer high value.
FWIW, in the area of BEV transit buses, Proterra is fielding extremely-competitive offerings and claims to have LOWER weight and carry more passengers than their ICE counterparts
. While I realized that is a different market and not directly comparable, I think this is the direction we need to be moving with BEVs. At the end of the day we need BEV solutions to be "no compromise" solutions.
