Parcel delivery vehicles make up one of the most significant heavy-duty vehicle segments by volume in Europe, recording a market share of 11% in 2020. Their predictable schedules and relatively short routes make last-mile delivery vehicles a prime candidate for electrification. This study by the International Council on Clean Transportation and the Regulatory Assistance Project quantifies the total cost of ownership (TCO) of last-mile delivery battery-electric trucks (BETs) and compares it to existing diesel truck fleets in six major European cities. In addition, the study also provides policy recommendations to overcome the differential cost between battery-electric trucks and their diesel counterparts.
