Zero-emission truck market is primed for growth

The limited sales penetration of zero-emission trucks in Western markets reflects a lack of available zero-emission trucks rather than a lack of demand, according to IDTechEx’s new report, “Electric and Fuel Cell Trucks 2023-2043.” Major corporations are clamoring for low-emission trucks (and greater support from governments) to help them meet their corporate pledges to reduce

Is faster EV charging worth the price?

Charging speeds for electric vehicles vary, from as little as 15 minutes using an ultra-rapid 350 kW charger, to as much as 24 hours when relying on a domestic wall outlet. OEMs are working on extending the charging rate up to 3 C (or even beyond), such as by using optimized cell cooling to allow
