    I've seen it done when maneuvering in tight spaces. In fact, in my day I've acted as a spotter for at least one semi truck driver.

    Single model for global market.

    Maybe some other studies/research that showed central diving position was better.

    Some back of the envelope using:
    • 1.7 kWh/mi on the 500 mi test trip
    • $135/kWh
    • 7 mi/gal for $5/gallon diesel regular semi
    Rough order of magnitude:
    • $115,000 battery cost
    • $0.20/mi electric cost
    • 3.5 times cheaper to operate than an equivalent diesel

  5. Here's the video of the Semi Delivery Event. Personally, I think it went well for them, even if there was some info - like volume and pricing, etc - that went unaddressed.
