Where is trucking going in the lifetime of a 2020 new diesel truck?

Linehaul could be going electric/ hydrogen even in NZ
https://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/122636171/zeroemission-hydrogen-heavy-trucks-to-hit-kiwi-roads Diesel engine trucks depreciate quicker than a falling brick, or diesel fuel gets carbon taxed to force everyone into electric something. Just simple things like the doors, can be different.

Something to considering if looking at alternative powered trucks , a new battery pack when due at 5 years for full electric trucks , the pack costs around $30,000 but they will explain that with the offset costs comparing diesel fuel used among other things over that 5 year gap with diesel power.We have full electric builds going at my work so now number 5 . currently 2 being built will bring to 7 done . From the smaller 2 ton up to 10 ton.I believe Scania diesel is all good as far as I know ,shorter stroke very smooth ,but wont last like a Volvo though. The lastest Mack I have driven and like it a lot ,but way outa my budget and neither need for one .But quite an impressive truck .
