Truck Trends

What was 2018’s biggest trend in trucking? Electrification—and there’s no sign of it slowing down.

2018 was the year of the e-truck. According to a recent report from Business Insider Intelligence, transportation leaders are responding to the global push for stricter emissions regulations by pouring billions of dollars into the electrification of trucks.

You may start seeing some of these e-trucks on the road in the near future. Daimler trucks just delivered the first electric Freightliner eM2–the first of ten that Freightliner plans to give Penske to test battery-electric vehicles in real-world operating conditions before entering series production.
