Much of the arguments against the EV truck have already been made in the last paradigm shift. With a vehicle you could only go certain places where with a horse you could go anywhere. With a vehicle you had to carry your gasoline with you in large cans because gas stations were far and few between whereas with a horse can eat gas along the way, no need to carry it's food. With a horse and buggy you could go over mountains (the horses were used to lower the buggies on steep hills/inclines, you can still see the marking on rock and trees in Oregon Trail and 8 other places) whereas with a vehicle you couldn't do that. Despite all these disadvantages, vehicles won because the disadvantages were addressed, just like today's supposed disadvantages of an EV truck, are and will be addressed.
