Trolley assist is one way battery-electric trucks can cut the productivity gap but there are issues with it.

Those figures, contained in Idoba's whitepaper Battery Electric Haul Trucks: Decoding Trade-offs and Maximising Value, are based on battery chemistry, with NCA batteries, a mix of lithium, nickel,
