European truck manufacturers promise fossil fuel-free transport sector by 2040 – Auto-Motor

The European commercial vehicle industry is committed to being carbon neutral by 2050, and to achieve this, the sector must be fossil fuel-free by 2040, as vehicles sold until then also have a lead time. An agreement to this effect has been signed by the commercial vehicle members of ACEA, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association, and the head of the Potsdam-Institut für Klimaforschung.
In their resolution, industry leaders emphasize that commercial vehicles need a charging network other than passenger cars for electric propulsion, adequate geographic coverage, greater charging capacity and secure access for logistics companies to consider purchasing such vehicles at all. The hydrogen fuel cell is a degree simpler, making it easier – but not necessarily cheaper – to implement a refueling network. And of course there are the synthetic fuels that can be used to decouple internal combustion engines from fossil fuels.
