A change in drive technology is also becoming apparent in commercial vehicles: According to a study, more than half of all new trucks will be electric vehicles by 2035.

As far as passenger cars are concerned, there seems to be little alternative to electric drives in the future.

Although some manufacturers have still not written off hydrogen technology, experts such as the Fraunhofer Institute or Stefan Bratzel, head of the Center of Automotive Management (CAM), see the fuel cell, if at all, at most as a drive solution for trucks. Yes can hydrogen really prevail here?

According to a new study, more than half of all new trucks will be battery-electric by 2035.

Study: From 2035, more than half of all new trucks will be electric

From as early as 2030, battery-electric and fuel cell-powered commercial vehicles will be cheaper to operate than diesel-powered vehicles - this is the result of the study "Preparing the world for zero-emission trucks", which was carried out by the management consultancy McKinsey.

According to the experts, the total operating costs are the most important criterion when selecting a commercial vehicle.

Biofuels or e-fuels could also be used in certain niche applications - despite the higher costs.

From 2024 more than 70 emission-free truck models on the market - according to the manufacturer

According to the management consultancy, more than half of all newly registered trucks in Europe, the USA and China will be electrically powered by 2035.

The study predicts that electric and fuel cell trucks will account for more than 85 percent of new registrations by 2040.

The manufacturers are to have more than 70 emission-free truck models on offer in Europe and the USA by 2024 – but primarily for urban and regional delivery traffic.

With the eActros, Mercedes has just presented an electrically operated long-distance truck.

Slow change: in 2030, 9 out of 10 trucks will still be conventionally powered

However, it will be a long time before combustion trucks disappear from everyday traffic: according to McKinsey, 9 out of 10 trucks will still be conventionally powered in 2030 - and even in 2040, 6 out of 10 will still be powered The study cites a survey of more than 400 fleet operators, in which more than 60 percent said they had announced specific decarbonization targets.

In the survey, however, there were still some concerns about the introduction of battery-powered trucks: a third of those surveyed cited the limited battery life as an obstacle (trucks have longer usage times than cars) - and then there were the usual criticisms of e-mobility: long charging times and limited ranges.
