Against the backdrop of weak economic performance and a drastic drop in demand for international transport, the number of trucks and van sales in Europe is rising.
Another important trend emerges from data released by ACEA: carriers are preparing for zero-emission on the road. In the first half of 2023, the number of electrically powered trucks increased by as much as 351.5%.
Although this is still not much compared to the overall transport market, only 1.3%, the rate of growth is impressive. After all, last year the number of electrically powered trucks increased by only 0.4%. It is important to remember that if carriers want to fulfill the Fit for 55 targets, the growth rate of electric trucks should be at least several hundred percent in the coming years.
