Environment Friendly Trucks

Posted by praneeth on November 30th, 2018

Truck manufacturing companies are now using alternative drive systems to produce environmentally friendly low carbon emission trucks. Alternative drive systems are hydrogen-powered, electric or hybrid vehicles. They have significantly low carbon emissions, make use of renewable fuels and lower fuel costs by up to 50%. For example, Mercedes-Benz manufactures trucks with alternative drive systems using biogas as fuel, thus making them sustainable, inexpensive and CO2 neutral. Daimler has the world’s largest truck fleet with hybrid drives. Hybrid trucks are being commercially used in North America, Europe and Japan.


Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region in the market, accounting for nearly one-third of the global market, and China was the largest country accounting for nearly one-third of the global commercial vehicles market.

According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, many motor vehicle manufacturing companies are integrating pre-collision assist and pedestrian detection technology in their vehicles to offer advanced safety features to customers. These technologies help in detection of blind spots and also alerts the driver when they are losing focus while driving, this system can also apply auto brake if driver falls asleep and does not respond to the warning, and thus these technologies significantly improve driver and pedestrian safety. For instance, in 2015, Ford launched Mondeo brand with pre-collision assist and pedestrian technology. Hyundai, Honda, Chevrolet and Volvo have also launched vehicles with pre-collision assist and pedestrian technology.
