Comparing hydrogen and battery electric trucks

Only emissions-free vehicles, which include battery electric (BEVs) and hydrogen fuel cell trucks (FCEVs), can provide for a credible long-term pathway towards the full decarbonisation of the road freight sector. This document lays out the methodology and assumptions which were used to calculate the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the two vehicle technologies for regional delivery and long-haul truck applications. It also discusses other criteria such as refuelling and recharging times as well as potential payload losses.
