    Short range fleet operators don't have range anxiety because they have planned routes and know before they start each trip exactly how long the trip will be. They can charge up on site before leaving from their own charging infrastructure (probably overnight). They will probably never have to use a supercharger. This applies to both trucks and busses.

    What's intriguing is that Tesla used the word "semi" to describe it's coming truck. That term implies long range trucking at highway speeds. Such trucks carry huge diesel tanks that allow the drivers to minimize stops. Plus, many semis are operated with two drivers for near-24 hour operation. This implies to me that Tesla will need to provide huge battery packs and battery pack swapping capabilities in order to be compelling to the industry.
