Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicle Demonstrations for Freight and Mobility Solutions
While adoption of light-duty electric vehicles (EVs) has increased and more models have become commercially available, medium-duty (MD) and heavy-duty (HD) EVs have not seen the same widespread success. MD and HD EVs offer tremendous potential economic benefits to fleets and wider energy and environmental benefits to communities. This project confronts that disparity to highlight the importance and uses of MD and HD EVs. Clean Fuels Ohio designed this project to prove the operational and financial effectiveness of MD and HD EVs in fleets and communities that had not previously used this technology. Through diverse partnerships, the project utilizes commercially available EVs, electric vehicle supply equipment, facilities, and app platforms to ensure seamless technology deployment and showcase significant return on investment. As part of this project, Clean Fuels Ohio and partners operate three demonstration projects of MD and HD EVs with the goal of leading to Class 4–8 EV adoption in various fleet applications across the country.
