Can Brazil’s commercial truck fleet turn electric?

With 2.2 million heavy commercial trucks in the national parc, Brazil is facing international pressure to bring more eco-friendly vehicles to the roads. However, the infrastructure and cost hurdles are massive.

In Brazil, intermodal transport is limited, with average truck trips spanning more than 2,000 km. Combine that with a commercial truck fleet averaging 12 years of age, and a lack of affordable options to replace with new vehicles, and Brazil is facing a truck-emissions timebomb. Brazil has a truck parc of 2.2 million units, and the movements to modernize the fleet by agribusiness, e-commerce and construction have contributed to reducing the fleet average age.
