Why does the vehicle's amount of consumption change the picture? (that's what you seem to imply, apologies if I misunderstood)
Because batteries don't have enough capacity. Not much point in having a big truck with half the weight used up by battery, similarly with public transport they need to run all day without much stopping (although wireless charging at bus stops would be a good option here).
