The electric trucks are coming now, say Danish researchers

Right now there aren't very many of them. But the electric trucks will still rumble onto the roads in a little while, believes a team from the Technical University of Denmark.

They are significantly outnumbered on Danish roads right now. Nevertheless, a team of researchers from DTU – the Technical University of Denmark – believes that the electric trucks are coming roaring now.

DTU writes this in a press release .

– In all the scenarios we have calculated, it seems that the transition from diesel to electric trucks will go much faster than the transition from fossil fuel to electricity among passenger cars.

– We have tested different scenarios, and they all say that the percentage of lorries that run on electricity will be much larger than that of passenger cars within the next ten years, says Jeppe Rich, who is a professor at DTU Management. Together with assistant professor Ahmed Karam, he is behind the calculations.

Despite DTU's calculations, electric trucks only make up about 1 percent of the stock of trucks in Denmark. By comparison, just over 6 percent of all passenger cars in Denmark run on electricity by the end of 2023.

But the picture could very well turn around for the trucks. At least here at home, where the current government will force all lorries on the roads to pay a kilometer tax already from the turn of the year. The government expects to receive DKK 1.3 per short kilometer.

The question then is whether the truck manufacturers will develop the trucks that DTU expects to see on the roads. For example, Volvo has recently said that it is betting on burning hydrogen in the big cars. And Toyota is testing the same. Read more about it here .
