There are over 400'000 electric buses in China. I assume they found a solution for the issue
There's also Tesla's Semi, which has a maximum loaded weight capacity of 80,000 lbs (36 t)—the limit imposed on all big rigs by US federal regulations—and a range of up to 500 miles (800 km) when charged to100%. Charging to 80% (the usual recommended maximum charge) takes 30 minutes at a solar-powered Tesla Megacharger and yields a range of 640 km. A commercial driver would normally not be able to travel 600+ km without mandatory breaks of at least 30 minutes anyway.

The tare weight of the Tesla Semi is not known, but estimates suggest that the trucks will have a loading capacity of up to 2 tonnes less than some ICE Class 8 semis. In most cases, that's probably not enough of a difference to mitigate against purchasing the Tesla.
