State of Sustainable Fleets 2020
The State of Sustainable Fleets is the first technology-neutral, comprehensive industry report that examines the current state of the most prevalent sustainable vehicle platforms for medium- and heavy-duty on-road transportation fleets across the U.S., while analyzing the trends shaping the future of the industry. Through interviews and surveys, the report gathers data from fleets who have real-world experience deploying sustainable vehicle technologies, supplemented by data from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and infrastructure providers.
2020 Key Findings
Sustainable Fleets are Growing
Sustainable vehicle and fuel use is growing across all categories of medium and heavy-duty alternative fuel vehicles: natural gas, propane, battery electric vehicles, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles.
Sustainable Technology More Than a Trend
98% of fleets surveyed currently using sustainable technology expect to continue at the same level or increase their use of these vehicles and fuels.
Sustainability a Top Fleet Motivator
Sustainability is the top motivator for purchasing decisions among early-adaptor public, private, and event for-hire fleets in deploying clean vehicle technologies.
Renewable Fuels Can Perform
Fleets confirm there is no material performance loss when switching to most renewable fuels – renewable diesel, natural gas, and electricity – and would use more when it is a cost-neutral, drop-in replacement.
