City e-truck charging can cut road freight emissions by a fifth - study

The EU could slash truck carbon pollution by over a fifth (22%) in a decade by requiring its main cities to have electric truck charging infrastructure. That’s according to an analysis of truck flows data which identifies 173 cities and urban areas [1] where chargers are needed in 2030 to put Europe’s road freight on a path to zero emissions. Transport & Environment (T&E) said that next year the EU should set ambitious targets for e-truck chargers.
