New York, March 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Electric Trucks Market by Propulsion, Type, Range, Battery Type, Battery Capacity, Level of Automation, End User, GVWR & Region - Global Forecast to 2030" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06130513/?utm_source=GNW
Reducing cost of EV batteries
The cost of EV batteries has been decreasing over the past decade due to technological advancements and the production of EV batteries on a mass scale.In 2010, the price of an EV battery was USD 1,100 per kWh.
According to Bloomberg, the price fell to USD 138 per kWh in 2022 and as low as USD 100 per kWh in China.This is due to the reduced manufacturing costs, cathode material prices, and increased production volume.
Prices of EV batteries are expected to be USD 40-60 per kWh by 2030, which will reduce the price of EV trucks, making them priced similarly to conventional ICE trucks.Other top battery manufacturers like Samsung SDI, Panasonic, LG Chem, SK Innovation, and CATL have been working with top EV manufacturers to achieve this goal in the next 4-5 years.
In April 2022, Samsung SDI announced the development of cobalt-free batteries to secure the price competitiveness of its EV batteries.
Lower operating cost
According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), 94.1 million barrels of gasoline per day were consumed in 2021 around the world. According to Forbes, petrol prices in the international market have been rising over the years. The demand for petrol and diesel in the world is high as they are non-renewable resources, which may get exhausted in the next few decades. Even though many treaties have been made to control the price of petrol in the international market, prices have been rising over the years. As most countries import petrol, its usage contributes to lowering the balance of trade in the economy. The limited petroleum reserves and rising prices of fuel have led automakers to consider alternative fuel sources for their vehicles. The operating cost of electric trucks is lower than petrol and some other fuel alternatives. Along with environment conservation, this is a major factor in the growing demand for EVs in the market.
Increasing vehicle range
The major area of development in electric trucks is their driving range on a single charge.With improvements in EV battery technology, various OEMs are working on developing longer-ranged electric trucks.
This will make electric trucks more viable as part of the commercial vehicle sector in the coming years.In February 2022, BYD launched Q1 for heavy-duty operations 25 with a 5 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery.
It delivers a range of around 200 km while the top-speed is restricted at 85 km/h.In October 2022, PepsiCo (US) announced the delivery of 100 electric truck Semi with a range of 500 miles to be used in its fleet for delivery purposes.
The logistics sector is the most contributing source of greenhouse gas emissions. Governments across the globe are constantly introducing new initiatives and policies to endorse long-range electric trucks for the logistics sector. These are expected to have a large market across major European countries such as Germany, UK, and France. US and China will also have a large market for upcoming long-range electric trucks due to strong government support.
