This paper is the third update to an initial report released in May 2019 that summarizes the current status, and projected growth, of the U.S. electric vehicle (EV) industry over the next five to ten years.
Race to zero: How manufacturers are positioned for zero-emission commercial trucks and buses in North America
This paper summarizes the new vehicle sales market for Class 2 through Class 8 heavy-duty truck and buses in the United States and Canada. In addition, it profiles the early market for zero-emission HDVs and provides a snapshot of the battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell products available across different truck and bus segments.
This brief defines key indicators that outline the state of transportation electrification in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee (‘Southeast’).
Still raging its way around the world, COVID-19 delivered an unprecedented sucker punch to the automotive industry.
This brief provides an overview of the historical and current state of government, private sector, and electric utility investment in publicly available charging infrastructure in the United States. With increasing funding available from both the electric utility and government sectors, charging service providers and related stakeholders have a significant, near-term opportunity to grow the public EV charging network in the United States and reduce the dependency on government subsidization over time.
This report provides an overview of public and utility funding for three major categories of medium- and heavy duty EVs: transit buses, school buses, and trucks. It builds on recent reports covering the market in California and finds that the business case for investing in electric buses and trucks is improving and electric models already have lower lifetime costs than conventional models in some cases.
This report explores policy options for medium- and heavy-duty electrification and argues that policy approaches should center on improving air quality in communities most burdened by vehicle pollution.
This analysis from the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM) compared the 2018 advertising expenditures in local markets in California and the Northeast for the best-selling electric vehicle (EV) model and the bestselling conventional vehicle model from six of the top EV manufacturers, including: Fiat-Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Nissan, and Toyota.
The brief analyzes different policy action at the state, local, and utility level and their effects on EV uptake across the United States. It highlights examples across 50 of the most populous metropolitan areas in the country to emphasize successful programs encouraging both EV adoption and charging infrastructure deployment.
The North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) created this Guidance Report to provide perspective, insights, and resources on the complex topic of the viability of commercial battery electric vehicles (CBEVs), Classes 3 through 8. This report provides a foundation for understanding the key arguments for and against this rapidly evolving powertrain alternative.
