Decarbonization Means Drastic Changes for the Medium and Heavy Duty Truck Value Chain
Moving away from
the internal combustion engine (ICE) is the biggest change that the truck
manufacturing industry will likely ever experience. More so than mass
production or regulation, decarbonization takes an established and mature
industry and turns it on its head. These changes will reverberate along the
entire industry value chain.
This report assesses the impact of decarbonization and electrification on the
medium and heavy duty (MHD) truck value chain for three specific stakeholder groups—OEMs, truck fleets, and dealers—and considers the viability of the current industry business model moving forward.
- Truck manufacturers
- Component suppliers
- Truck dealerships
- Truck fleets
