There's a reason why diesel kicked steam out of locomotives and gas out of big trucks a half century or so ago and hasn't budged since... Compression ignition is still the most economical power source with a power density that electric vehicles can't compete with. Barring a quantum leap in battery performance, electric propulsion isn't going to evict diesel anytime soon.
