We can't even agree on plans for plastic straws and grocery bags.

I'm not sure how trucks will be affected, but I saw a Forbes article a week ago predicting that electric vehicles are on the verge of driving oil companies out of business. They forecast that (in a few years) the cost of oil would have to drop to $10 a barrel to remain competitive with renewable energy. We'll see. Forbes knows more about it than I do.

For those of us that use trucks. It needs to be rated under SAE J2807. It needs to cover 500 miles in a 10 hour day. I need it rated for at least a 12,000# 5er. I do not need an expensive grocery getter or lawn ornament. I am willing to pay for performance, but not for feeling good.
Not the truck EV market. Same as you would not buy the base V6 (no turbo).

Many trucks max work is a trip to the Home Depot for some new plants. Many others just commute to work and back. Maybe pick up groceries on the weekend. This is the truck EV market.

Don't worry gas and diesel will be around a long time.

$5 you both also had to walk 10 miles to school, in the snow, up hills to and from school. Or, you still do.
