European truck manufacturers stop selling fuel vehicles in 2040, ten years ahead of schedule

  • December 16, 2020

Several large European truck manufacturers have promised to stop selling vehicles with emissions by 2040, 10 years ahead of schedule.

Daimler, Scania, Mann, Volvo trucks, DAF, Iveco and Ford signed a commitment to phase out traditional internal combustion engine models and focus on hydrogen, battery technology and clean fuel development.

At present, European regulators and governments are seeking to phase out emissions vehicles in road transport. According to the EU plan, carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by 50% by 2030. The UK has said it will stop selling new gasoline and diesel vehicles, including hybrids, by 2035, and will negotiate further to try to stop using diesel powered trucks.

Although electric vehicle system and other technologies are very suitable for delivery vehicles in cities, due to charging problems, long-distance transport vehicles still need to use diesel engines. The industry expects hydrogen to be a more likely future solution for large long haul trucks, but hydrogen requires dedicated infrastructure, and biofuels are expected to help reduce emissions in the short term. Whether it is the construction of charging station or hydrogenation station, enterprises need to make a lot of investment and upgrade the power grid, so that the power grid can handle the sudden demand for rapid charging of large trucks.

It also called on the EU to impose higher carbon taxes, thereby reducing investment in fossil fuel technologies.
