This paper reviews and summarizes the latest information on the pace of transition required for the HDV fleet to align with climate targets, the feasibility of such a transition given the latest data on technology availability and cost, potential pathways for adoption in various HDV segments, and high-priority policies and measures that governme

This briefing gives an overview of the status of ZEV development in the Eurasian region. EV adoption is still at a very early stage for most countries in Eurasia, although several countries are scaling up EV sales of passenger vehicles.

This briefing gives an overview of the status of ZEV development in the emerging economies of Africa. Electric shares of total vehicle sales in Africa are well below levels found in many developing countries in other regions.

The ASEAN fuel economy roadmap, developed and adopted by ASEAN transport ministers in 2018, outlines a vision to transform the light-duty vehicle market in the ASEAN region into one of the world’s most fuel efficient.

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.

Promotion of zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) technologies is a key global strategy for decarbonizing the transport sector and helping to achieve long-term climate goals. ZEV sales are increasing rapidly in the world’s leading passenger vehicle markets, including China and many of the countries represented in the ZEV Transition Council (ZEVTC).

Cars, vans, buses, and trucks account for 21% of global anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Under currently adopted policies, fleetwide CO2 emissions are projected to continue rising through 2050. Transitioning the global vehicle fleet to zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) technologies is crucial to decarbonizing road transport and meeting climate goals.

Europe’s electric car boom is at risk of stalling, jeopardising the sales of 18 million battery electric vehicles, new data shows. EU clean car rules have driven plug-in vehicle sales to almost one-fifth of the market.

This paper evaluates if electric two-wheelers in India with the battery-swapping option have achieved cost parity relative to electric two-wheelers with the point charging option and with conventional gasoline two-wheelers.

This briefing provides an update on electric vehicle market and policy developments globally through 2020, with a focus on changes since previous update in 2019.
