Global Electric Trucks Market - Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, and Forecast to 2028

Updated on 28th July 2023 | Market Research Reports | Q2 2023 | Report ID: BR0250

About the Report

The electric truck market has been experiencing substantial growth in recent times. The rising awareness of environmental issues, including air pollution and climate change, has prompted governments, businesses, and consumers worldwide to seek cleaner and more sustainable transportation solutions. As a result, the demand for electric trucks, which produce zero tailpipe emissions, has surged.

 

Major players in the automotive industry have also shown increasing interest in the electric truck segment, leading to the development and introduction of various electric truck models.

Moreover, governments across different regions have been implementing supportive policies and incentives, such as subsidies, tax credits, and stricter emission regulations, to promote the adoption of electric vehicles, including electric trucks.

 

Despite this positive trajectory, challenges related to charging infrastructure, range limitations, high upfront costs relative to conventional diesel trucks, and battery technology need to be addressed to ensure the continued expansion and adoption of electric trucks. 

 

Driver

Increasing Policy Support for Electric Heavy-Duty Vehicles

In February 2023, the European Commission unveiled proposed revisions to the regulation on emissions from Heavy-Duty Vehicles (HDVs). According to the estimates provided by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), these new regulations have the potential to lead to a remarkable reduction of over 75% in sectoral emissions by the year 2050 when compared to the emission levels recorded in 2020.

 

As a consequence of the proposed revisions to the regulation on HDV emissions and the potential for significant emissions reduction, numerous European Union member countries are intensifying their support for zero-emission heavy transport within their national plans. 

 

One such example is Germany, which has taken a proactive approach by offering some of the highest truck purchase subsidies in Europe. Under this initiative, up to 80% of the additional costs associated with purchasing zero-emission vehicles and/or setting up the required charging infrastructure are covered by the government. This substantial financial support aims to incentivize the adoption of cleaner and more sustainable transportation solutions, furthering the transition towards zero-emission heavy transport in the country.

 

Ireland's updated Climate Action Plan includes targets of 700 low-emission heavy-duty trucks by 2025 and a 30% share of zero-emission heavy-duty truck sales by 2030. The plan also incorporates provisions specifically aimed at addressing emissions and environmental impacts from heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs).

 

In the United Kingdom, while support for electric cars has been phased out, HDVs continue to be included in subsidy schemes, ensuring ongoing financial assistance for their adoption and related charging infrastructure.

 

In the United States, the Investment in Rural America (IRA) initiative allocates USD 1 billion for vehicles and infrastructure, with a specific focus on Heavy-Duty Vehicles (HDVs). This funding includes subsidies to encourage the adoption of cleaner HDVs and investments in infrastructure to support their charging needs.

 

In California, the state's funding package for charging infrastructure prioritizes HDVs, with 70% of the allocated funds dedicated to charging facilities catering to these vehicles.

 

Similarly, in Australia, the Future Fuels Program's subsidy scheme provides dedicated funding for HDVs and HDV charging, with a focus on promoting the use of cleaner fuels and technologies in the heavy-duty transportation sector. This funding is distinct from the support available for Light-Duty Vehicles (LDVs), emphasizing the specific attention given to HDVs in the country's efforts to transition to more sustainable transportation options.

 

Current Status of the Global Electric Truck Market

In 2022, the global electric truck market continued to experience steady growth, with nearly 60,000 medium- and heavy-duty electric trucks sold worldwide. These sales represented approximately 1.2% of total truck sales globally, indicating a modest but notable increase in the adoption of electric trucks in the commercial transportation sector.

 

Despite the growing interest in electric trucks, their sales shares in most major markets, except China, have remained relatively low. In countries other than China, cumulative sales of electric medium- and heavy-duty trucks have reached only a few hundred units. For instance, across the entire European Union, just under 2,000 electric trucks were sold in the year 2022.

 

Sales shares of electric trucks generally remain well below 1% in both medium- and heavy-duty segments in these markets. However, there are notable efforts by major shipping logistics companies, which have been conducting demonstrations of electric trucks in regional and long-haul operations. These demonstrations aim to showcase the capabilities of electric trucks and their potential in various transportation applications.

 

Despite the slow uptake in sales, the industry is hopeful that ongoing advancements in technology, supportive policies, and growing awareness of environmental concerns will gradually lead to a wider adoption of electric trucks in the medium- and heavy-duty sectors in the coming years.

 

Segment Analysis

By Propulsion Type

In the current state of the global electric truck market, battery electric trucks have emerged as the dominant technology, enjoying widespread adoption and commercial availability. These trucks operate solely on electric power and utilize high-capacity EV batteries to store and deliver energy to their electric drivetrains. The advancements in battery technology, such as increased battery capacity and improved charging capabilities, have significantly contributed to the popularity of battery electric trucks. As a result, various manufacturers have introduced a range of battery electric truck models suitable for different applications, from light-duty trucks to heavy-duty long haul trucks.

 

On the other hand, fuel cell electric trucks are still in their initial stages of development and deployment. Fuel cell trucks employ hydrogen fuel cells to generate electricity, which then powers the electric drivetrain. While the technology shows great promise for long-range and heavy-duty applications, it is currently in the early phases of commercialization. Many fuel cell electric trucks are deployed on a pilot basis or are undergoing extensive testing to evaluate their performance, efficiency, and real-world viability.

 

Regional Analysis

China maintained its position as a dominant force in the production and sales of electric trucks. In 2022, approximately 52,000 electric medium- and heavy-duty trucks were sold in China, accounting for an impressive 4% of total truck sales within the country. Moreover, Chinese manufacturers remained at the forefront of the global electric truck market, contributing to approximately 85% of all electric truck sales worldwide.

 

The influence of Chinese electric truck manufacturers extended beyond their home market. In regions like Latin America, North America, and Europe, many of the electric trucks being sold bore the branding of Chinese manufacturers. This growing trend showcases the global expansion and recognition of Chinese electric truck brands, as they gain market share and compete with established international manufacturers.
