Battery electric trucks are reaching wider-scale consideration as truck, engine, and other component makers are developing the systems that will support such vehicles. Battery and power-electronic development has progressed to make these trucks viable, yet there are misconceptions about these vehicles and electric vehicles are not without their challenges.
To help the industry make sense of this emerging technology, NACFE has completed a series of four Guidance Reports on electric vehicles.
The four reports are:
- Electric Trucks — Where They Make Sense explores the 10 common themes and arguments both for and against electric trucks.
- Medium-Duty Electric Trucks — Cost Of Ownership provides insights on the known and unknown factors affecting the cost of a medium-duty battery electric vehicle and includes a TCO calculator.
- Amping Up — Charging Infrastructure For Electric Trucks provides a roadmap that fleets considering deploying electric vehicles can follow to ensure they have a cost-effective strategy in place.
- Viable Class 7/8 Electric, Hybrid And Alternative Fuel Tractors provides unbiased information on the current progress, trade-offs and key considerations for fleets evaluating alternative to traditional diesel powertrains.
