Development and fleet testing of electric commercial vehicles is accelerating as manufacturers attempt to satisfy ever-stricter emissions regulations. Electrification strategies can prove effective for medium- and heavy-duty trucks in a variety of applications, including “last mile” urban delivery, longer routes that “return to base” for depot charging, and increasingly, even long-haul trucking when hydrogen fuel cells are added to the equation.
Still, concerns abound related to infrastructure, battery technology and costs, component and system durability and production availability, among others. Industry experts will offer insights on the issues and advantages and share some success stories in this 60-minute Technical Webinar from the editors of SAE International.
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentations.
