Preliminary FREVUE results do not only highlight the technical and operational suitability of fully electric freight vehicles but also their limited availability and high prices. On the other hand, many vehicle suppliers are not yet convinced of sufficient demand for electric freight vehicles.
It is therefore important to clearly communicate the demand for electric freight vehicles to suppliers. We invite urban logistics operators interested in the electrification of their fleet to sign the Declaration of Intent.
Why do we ask you to sign?
Highlighting demand for electric freight vehicles will help to:
1 – persuade vehicle manufacturers to start and/or scale up development and production of (hybrid) electric trucks
2 – strengthen bids for financial support as long as electric trucks remain considerably more expensive than their diesel alternatives
What do you get out of it?
1- You are actively supporting the electric freight vehicle market
2 – You are clearly communicating to the outside world that sustainable transport is something you are serious about
3 – You will be able to identify like-minded organisations in your area, potentially leading to joint procurement opportunities
