Possibilities for the
Electrification of
Heavy Commercial Vehicles

  Battery, fuel cell, or both concepts in parallel – unlike in passenger cars, no main solution that is equally suitable for all segments and transportation tasks has yet established itself for future alternative powertrains for heavy commercial vehicles. Accordingly, both systems are currently being developed to series maturity, as can be shown by a brief look at the activities of some commercial vehicle manufacturers.
