Techno-economic uptake potential of zeroemission trucks in Europe


According to a study by the Dutch research organisation TNO, commissioned by Agora Verkehrswende and Transport & Environment (T&E), battery-electric trucks in Europe will already be cheaper than diesel trucks in almost all applications in the total cost calculation by 2030 and will meet the same requirements for range, running time and payload. Agora and T&E, therefore, recommend that the EU fleet limits for CO2 emissions from new trucks be significantly tightened by 2030 and, if possible, reduced to zero by 2035.
