Although electric vehicle technology has progressed rapidly, critical challenges still remain for developing viable electric vehicle systems for heavier vehicles such as transit buses. One of the key challenges to electrifying heavy duty vehicles is battery size. Large batteries are heavy, which reduces range, and require long charging times. However, on-board battery size can be reduced if en-route charging is used.
