Zero-emissions trucks (ZETs) — including battery-electric trucks and fuel-cell-electric trucks — can reduce air pollution and transportation costs while enhancing industrial competitiveness, benefiting both citizens and the Indian economy. Road freight accounts for more than 25 percent of annual oil imports.

This study reviews recent literature on current and projected battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell tractor truck costs. In the available literature, battery-electric tractor truck up-front costs range from about $200,000 to $800,000, and generally costs increase with increased driving range as a function of total battery capacity.

This paper presents a total cost of ownership assessment of battery-electric Class 2b and 3 commercial vehicles between 2020 and 2040 benchmarked against the corresponding costs of gasoline and diesel powertrains.

The recently published heavy-duty vehicle certification data from the European Union are a valuable source of information to assess the values of the CO2 standards baseline, track the progress of truck manufacturers towards their reduction targets, and understand the various technology pathways chosen by manufacturers to decarbonize their fleets

An upcoming review of the heavy-duty CO2 emissions standards in the European Union will consider several adjustments to the regulation, including the possibility of extending the CO2 emissions reduction targets to other vehicle segments, as well as setting specific targets for trailers.

There is growing interest, especially in Latin America, in implementing and expanding voluntary green freight programs that include eco-driving as a key component.

The Union ministry of petroleum and natural gas has prepared a draft liquefied natural gas (LNG) policy which aims to set up a framework for the promotion of gas and find ways for LNG adoption in sectors which currently does not use it as a fuel.

The Goa Motor Vehicles Tax (Amendment) Bill, 2020 is a Bill further to amend the Goa, Daman and Diu Motor Vehicles Tax Act, 1974 (Act No.8 of 1974). In the Goa, Daman and Diu Motor Vehicles Tax Act, 1974 (Act No.

Trucks account for less than 2% of the vehicles on the road but 22% of CO2 emissions from road transport. The relative share of truck emissions is bound to increase as emissions from passenger cars are driven downwards by the surge in the sales of electric cars.

China's top environmental watchdog has vowed to succeed in air pollution control this year by enhancing the management of diesel-powered trucks while further reducing industrial emissions.
