They significantly reduce air and noise pollution, contributing to cleaner and quieter urban environments. With lower operating costs and decreased reliance on fossil fuels, they provide economic benefits while promoting sustainability. Electric trucks also stimulate innovation and job creation in the rapidly evolving transportation sector.

GREEN HOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

TRUCKS VS CARS

Truck = 10 cars

Fossil Fuel-powered trucks are responsible for a sizable portion of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from road transport, while only accounting for a small portion of the number vehicles on the road
(approximately 10x more GHG per truck than per car).

TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP


TRUCK LOGISTICS

In contrast to privately owned passenger cars where upfront prices matter most to consumers, trucks (like all commercial vehicles) are vehicles that drive significantly higher mileages.

That makes the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) rather than the upfront purchasing price the key decision-making factor for transport operators. When making a purchase or leasing decision, haulers take into account all truck-related costs over the vehicle’s entire use period.

With trucks being heavily used capital goods, which are running for more than one million kilometres over their lifetime, operating costs such as electricity and fuel as well as maintenance have a significant impact on the TCO as they scale with increasing mileage.

In other words, the longer the distances a truck drives, the more cost-competitive the electric truck becomes compared to its diesel counterpart.
