Linfox chairman Peter Fox says the trucking company is keen to investigate the use of electric trucks, particularly for its Armaguard business. Tesla has revealed plans for an electric truck that could run at maximum weight for 500 miles before needing to be recharged. Fox says there would need to be a lot more charging stations available before Linfox could consider using electric trucks, while he does not think that governments should subsidise the use of electric vehicles.
