Market Insights – Electric trucks Market
Rising Adoption of Sustainable Mobility

The rising adoption of sustainable mobility is encouraging the introduction of electric trucks (including such as longer-range battery-electric and fuel-cell electric trucks) and other electric vehicles for demanding and heavy long-haul operations. Electric trucks fueled by hydrogen fuel cells are expected to be made available during 2022–2028. To lessen the impact of climate on transportation, a rapid transition from fossil fuels to alternatives such as electricity is required. As a result, most transportation businesses are likely to transition to electric vehicles in stages. During the transition, many of them will have a mixed fleet of trucks fueled by different fuels.

Electric mobility will enable energy savings through more efficient and cleaner transport, thus allowing governments to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) laid by the United Nations. Electric trucks, like other electric vehicles, will assist to cut tailpipe pollution, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, promote community health, providing energy security, and improving employment and upskilling opportunities. Combining electric mobility goals with renewable energy goals will help to further decarbonize the transportation industry. Businesses and government agencies in Europe as well as developing regions may play a big role in decreasing global greenhouse gas emissions and boosting electric truck adoption by providing EV charging infrastructure and migrating fleet vehicles to electric trucks. 

Propulsion-Based Insights

Based on propulsion, the electric trucks market is segmented into BEV, FCV, and PHEV. The BEV segment accounted for the largest market share in 2021. Battery-powered electric trucks are expected to contribute notably to the market growth. Manufacturers such as Volvo and Navistar are leveraging their technology capabilities, shortening the development cycle for BEVs, and focusing on a fast time-to-market. The increasing battery life and energy density, and a drop in battery prices are likely to boost the electric trucks market for the BEV segment.

Vehicle-Based Insights

Based on vehicle type, the electric trucks market is bifurcated into LCVs and medium & HCVs. The LCV segment led the market with a larger market share in 2021. Automakers and allied powertrain component suppliers are embracing an electric, clean, and sustainable future. By creating new paradigms from the initial stages, several OEMs are changing traditional ways of  establishing LCV platforms. Many significant OEMs are developing specific eLCV platforms. In the meanwhile, the increasing demand for a high degree of customization by fleet managers and the introduction of new services-based models are benefitting the LCV industry.

Range-Based Insights

Based on range, the electric trucks market is segmented into less than 200 miles and more than 200 miles. The more than 200 miles segment led the market with a larger share in 2021. Longer-range commercial vehicles dominate the global market due to large preferences among end users.

Automation-Based Insights

Based on the level of automation, the electric trucks market is segmented into semi-autonomous and fully autonomous. Semi-autonomous electric trucks hold a larger share of the market. However, fully autonomous trucks are expected to dominate the market in the coming years due to the increasing adoption of automation across all industries and the evolution of technologies allowing complete functioning for self-driving trucks.

Based on the electric trucks market report, players operating in the market are mainly focused on new product launches.

  • In early 2021, Volvo Trucks introduced the new Volvo FM electric truck model. This model, with new automated features, offers enhanced visibility for drivers and an integrated electronically controlled brake system.
  • In August 2021, Navistar announced the launch of its new fully electric international eMV Series trucks. The eMV trucks are designed to combine medium-duty truck experience with zero emissions and deliver a fully integrated electrified powertrain solution.
