Moreover, appealing truck & battery leasing alternatives and easier access to charging stations would further promulgate the expansion of the medium and heavy-duty electric trucks market in Europe over the coming years.


Europe Medium & Heavy Duty Electric Trucks Market Research Report: Forecast (2023-2028)

Market Dynamics:

Key Driver: Increasing Implementation of Stringent Norms for Emission Control

The sales of medium and heavy duty trucks vehicles have been growing steadily in Europe as more & more emission-related norms & regulations are being implemented by governments & the European Union in order to reduce the impact of global warming & greenhouse effect. In 2022, the European Union presented the new Euro 7 standards for ensuring cleaner vehicles on roads and improved air quality. These norms extremely focus on lowering harmful gasses like carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, etc.

In addition, various countries like Portugal, Finland, & Denmark, among others, have set their targets to phase-out conventional fuel-based trucks by 2040, which would result in a strong demand for electric trucks in the coming years. Hence, OEMs like Volvo, Renault, MAN, & Scania are increasing their production capacities in order to cater to the evolving consumer demands, thereby driving the Europe Medium & Heavy Duty Electric Trucks Market.

Growth Restraint: High Production & Ownership Costs of Electric Vehicles

Financing the transition to zero-emission trucking is one of the major challenges faced by fleet owners. The truck companies lack the resources to overcome the large capital investments needed to purchase zero-emission trucks due to the higher Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of electric trucks as compared to diesel trucks. Hence, the high investment in the procurement of electric trucks is restraining the fleet owners from transiting to the electric trucks and this may further create a challenge for the Europe Medium and Heavy-Duty Electric Trucks market during the forecast period as well.

Key Trend: Adoption of Advanced Technologies to Lead the Market in the Forecast Period

The development of self-driving electric trucks is the key trend gaining popularity in the electric trucks market in Europe. The vehicle manufacturing companies are collaborating with related technology-based companies to accelerate their research and development efforts for the development of advanced self-driving truck models in Europe. For instance,

in 2022, Pininfarina, an Italy-based design company and subsidiary of Mahindra, developed an electric semi-truck in partnership with Deppway, a subsidiary of Baidu, which has provided self-driving technology known as the Highway Intelligence System (HIS) to the truck. The self-drive system uses 11 cameras on board, an infrared detector, 5mm wave radars, and LIDAR sensors. Thus, the growing development of self-driving trucks in Europe is anticipated to propel the market demand in the forthcoming years as well.

Market Segmentation

By Propulsion Type:

  • Battery Electric Truck (BET)
  • Plug-in Hybrid Electric Truck (PHET)
  • Fuel Cell Electric Truck (FCET)

Of these three, Battery Electric Trucks (BET) would contribute considerably to the Europe Medium & Heavy Duty Electric Trucks Market owing to the density improvements and declining costs of lithium-ion batteries. As BETs consume no conventional resources, it results in zero-carbon emissions. Moreover, the increasing number of targets set by several countries in Europe to phase-out conventional fueled trucks across the EU-27 is another crucial aspect augmenting the demand for BETs.

As a result, to support the sustainable goals of these countries, EV companies like MAN, Northvolt AB, etc., alongside battery manufacturers have ramped up their production & distribution capacities in order to cater to the ever-growing end-user requirements for BETs, thereby propelling the overall market expansion.

By Level of Automation:

  • Level 1
  • Level 2
  • Level 3
