First critics were the capabilities of the Tesla electric truck Semi

A study by Transport and Environment, a consortium of European environmental organizations, compared energy consumption and the environmental impact of conventional diesel trucks and their all-electric counterparts.

Two different diesel trucks were used for the study: one with an average consumption of 33 l/100 km and a more economical one with a consumption of 22 l/100 km.

The study showed that diesel trucks consume 2.2 to 3.3 kWh per kilometer, which is much higher than the average electric truck, which requires 1.44 kWh per kilometer. Electric vehicles designed from the ground up with maximum efficiency in mind, such as Tesla Semi, require only 1.15 kWh per km. the Authors of the study concluded that in General, the use of fully electric trucks reduces energy consumption by 1.5-2.9 times.
