After announcing in mid-February that it had racked up some 110,000 orders for the Chevrolet Silverado EV pickup, General Motors has now reportedly added almost as many reservations from fleet buyers, and companies are now past the stage where they were doing research and testing the waters - they have decided that they can go fully-electric with their next order of work trucks.

According to Ed Peper, vice president of GM Fleet, who spoke to Automotive News,
What was once … 'Tell me about it' is now 'Help me develop a plan to get there.’ Their interest level regarding EVs at this point in time is extremely high.
Fleet companies need replacement vehicles. They are tools of their trade and tools of their business, just like laptop computers are. Our demand has never been greater than it is right now. We are going to be up significantly more than the rest of the industry

Yeah I read they have like 89,000 fleet orders which means normal orders will probably not be made until 2024. That sucks.
