Spurred on by the disruption of first movers like Tesla, the electric vehicle revolution is spreading at an extremely rapid pace. With the arrival of vehicles like the Tesla Semi, the EV movement is set to spread to even larger markets. Amidst the Semi’s impending disruption, industry veterans are beginning to get excited about the all-electric long-hauler’s arrival.

One of these veterans is Sean Chenault, who has been in the trucking business for 16 years. Over this time, he has taken on numerous roles, from being a trucker to serving as a manager. Just recently, Chenault expressed his optimism for the Semi, stating that the vehicle “is a good thing for the trucking industry as a whole.”
