In line with the the automotive sector’s strategic contract
The development of electromobility is one of the key aspects of the automotive sector’s strategic contract, signed on 22 May 2018 by representatives of manufacturers and public authorities. For a number of years, the industrial and urban vehicle sector has been committed to improving energy efficiency and reducing harmful emissions. Against this background, an industry working group has studied the conditions for the development of electric industrial vehicles (from light commercial to 44-tonne vehicles).
Energy Transition: we are all involved
All stakeholders involved in the development of electromobility in road transportation of goods are involved in the sector’s transformation: manufacturers, distributors and repairers of industrial vehicles, battery manufacturers, charging infrastructures, hauliers and hire companies, logistics specialists, energy producers and distributors, public administrations and communities.
The white paper sets out a state of the art of the current offer of electric industrial vehicles and confirms its relevance for certain uses in road transport (distances and tonnages). It outlines its prospects for development with due regard for technology and energy neutrality. Finally, it presents proposals to public authorities for accelerating the development of the electrical sector.
- ‘Decarbonise’ road freight transport
- Keep Europe competitive
- What are the solutions for reducing the cost of electric powertrains, batteries and charging facilities?
- What is the current offer?
The success of the transition to electric industrial vehicles hinges on the implementation of the sectors’ 10 recommendations to support hauliers and operators in every element of electric mobility: purchase, charging, operation, and best practices.
