First I reverse engineered their calculations. See picture.
Among others, we determined a modern truck would need 1.3 kWh/km on average.
"Such a large battery is so heavy that it becomes impossible to take anything with you!" is what many people say. Well... not quite.
That means the 1 MWh battery we need weights 6t (tonnes).

So really: battery weight is not a long term problem for electric trucks and it can get you the cheapest energy/km.
Answer (1 of 17): Approximately 9.5 Tons. That's just the tractor. The “truck" with no trailer. The “truck" is not actually a truck as, by definition, a truck has a cargo capacity. In a big rig, the...https://www.quora.com/How-much-does-the-average-big-rig-truck-weigh
If we electrify them we also use batteries to maximum effect because these trucks save an unparalleled amount of CO2 (and money!) per kWh of battery.
Not aware of the 3t (6600 lbs) drivetrain advantage.
Battery 8.5 kg/kWh instead of the 6 kg/kWh that I got by basing it on current battery tech.
Energy use 1.6 kWh/km is non-optimized truck.
