Purchase costs of zero-emission trucks in the United States to meet future Phase 3 GHG standards


A new ICCT study provides updated data on the upfront cost of zero-emission trucks in the United States. The upfront cost parity between battery electric trucks and their diesel counterparts is expected to be achieved in the late 2020s or early 2030s for most truck segments. The exception is long-haul tractor-trucks, for which the large batteries will continue to be the dominant cost item. By 2040, fuel-cell electric trucks will have a similar price to battery-electric and diesel trucks
