The National Zero-Emission Truck (ZET) Coalition, including roughly four dozen organizations representing America’s major heavy truck makers, innovators, suppliers and key stakeholders, sent a letter to Congressional leadership calling on any stimulus or recovery legislative package to prioritize investments that benefit U.S. ZET production and competitiveness.
Critical new federal investments should include the creation of a five-year ZET point-of-sale incentive to encourage fleet acquisition of zero emission trucks, building the charging and refueling infrastructure needed to support fleet adoption and ensure the United States remains a global leader in the deployment of these advanced trucks, and prioritization of technological innovations that drive U.S. supply chain long-term competitiveness.
Looking ahead, the ZET Coalition stands ready to advance policies that help position the United States as a continued leader in the zero-emission truck industry.
