Phase 2 of the heavy-duty truck greenhouse gas emissions and fuel efficiency standards mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency and National Highway Traffice Safety Administration are projected to lower CO2 emissions by approximately 1.1 billion metric tons. Fuel consumption will decline as the new rules become tighter.
The number of models of zero-emission trucks, buses, and off-road equipment available globally is expected to double between the end of 2019 and 2023, according to an analysis by Calstart. Medium-duty trucks have the most models available between now and 2023, and this segment is showing the fastest growth, with 81 electric MD trucks by 2023, 67 of which will be available in the U.S. and Canada.
