Wrightspeed CEO and Tesla-cofounder wants to retrofit medium and heavy-duty fossil-fueled trucks with efficient electric powertrains, making them cleaner, quieter, energy-efficient and easier to maintain.
There exists a set called 'semi truck glider kits'.

These are factory-warranted chassis ready to receive the drivetrain of choice. They can plug right in to an existing industry.

"We find that whole communities suddenly fix their minds upon one object, and go mad in its pursuit; that millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it, till their attention is caught by some new folly more captivating than the first."
