The trucking industry will have an outsize role in the upcoming energy transition as heavy-duty commercial vehicles account for almost a quarter of global refined product demand. Being increasingly exposed to disruptive forces could radically alter long-established trends in heavy-duty trucking and have critical impacts on fuel, electricity and hydrogen demand.
The Reinventing the Truck study will include:
  • Excel data sets for truck sales, and fleet outlooks to 2050 in two scenarios. 
  • A Summary Report that will provide detail on the policy, technology, and cost assumptions used in the sales and fleet modeling and also in the total cost of ownership analysis. 
  • The research includes the following key markets: China, US, Europe, Japan.
