Announcing Run on Less - Electric

The North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) will be conducting Run on Less - Electric (RoL-E), an electric truck technology demonstration in 2021. Commencing in September of 2021 the three-week roadshow will showcase electric trucks in everyday operation.

Run on Less Electric will feature 10 dedicated trucks and drivers across the United States and Canada, supported by their fleets and truck OEM partners. Vehicles from vans, to medium-duty box trucks to heavy-duty tractors will be moving freight in different duty cycles and geographic and climate areas.

We are now accepting applications for participants; if you are interested please contact Mike Roeth, NACFE Executive Director, at, or Dave Schaller, NACFE Industry Engagement Director, at

Along with the Run, NACFE and RMI will be conducting a series of educational events about battery electric trucks beginning in May. Registration for those sessions will open in April. The education series overview can be found here.
