Recent Developments:

  • In April 2021 electric truck specialist Tevva announced a joint partnership with European energy company Vattenfall and is now moving towards developing electric vehicles with zero-emission.

  • In 2021, electric vehicle manufacturing Rivian announced that it would be using Samsung SDI battery cells for its upcoming trucks and SUVs which creates another partnership project between two technological firms.

  • In 2020, BYD introduced its blade battery which was a development that eliminated concerns about battery safety in electric vehicles.

  • In 2020 according to a report it was suggested that around 1.3 million units of publicly accessible chargers have been installed out of which 30% are fast charging units. Thus, people can charge their vehicles on their way too.



The electric commercial vehicle market has gained significance in terms of not only individuals shifting their demands to electric vehicles but also various Governments of different countries have taken a step towards improving their public transport by making them electric which not only reduce carbon emissions but is cost-effective, more secure, less noisy and are attractive.

The awareness that has been created among people against petroleum and diesel vehicles has provided momentum to this market and has led to an increase in electric commercial market revenue. Various logistics companies have also shifted towards electric transport vehicles due to the ever-increasing prices of conventional fuels which helps them cut higher costs. 


Though the electric commercial vehicle market is on a growing run, certain factors act as barriers towards its inclination in the long run. One such factor which is clinical in the progress of electric vehicles is the development cost of such vehicles which generally remains high due to advanced technological systems and the battery systems involved in the manufacturing of such vehicles which makes them a bit costly for the common strata of the society.

Also, the development of electric charging stations would require a huge amount of money to be directed towards this project by the governments of different countries. As per reports, it is expected that $2.7 trillion would be required for building EV charging stations worldwide which would not be possible for developing countries to maintain. 

Technology Analysis:

Electric commercial vehicle market is mostly dependent on technological use since most of its operations in manufacturing electric vehicles are based on the use of advanced technology like advanced batteries, plug-ins, advanced charging systems, etc. Therefore, technology plays an important role in increasing the overall market share.

In the recent market trends, lithium-ion batteries have been gaining much popularity where the weight and the cost of batteries are high which can hinder the growth of the market.
