Charging Behavior and Grid Impact of Electrified Class 8 Semi-Trucks

Research output: NRELManagement


Passenger electric vehicle (EV) cumulative sales passed the 4 million mark in 2018 (1 million EVs have been sold in the United States alone) and continue to grow rapidly in many countries—with EV stock increasing by over 60% from 2017 to 2018. As transportation electrification progresses and economies of scale emerge, it is important to consider the opportunity for heavy-duty vehicle electrification in the freight trucking industry.
