Yep, so an 80 mile range is completely indadequate for 99% of delivery drivers.

The issues with commercial vehicles and EV power really are weight and space. In order to put enough batteries in to move the kind of loads the van will get filled up with the kind of distance they need to go, the batteries will encroach into the load space and increase the weight to the point where you'll need an HGV licence to transport a single fridge.
