Battery Electric Parcel Delivery Truck Testing and Demonstration

August 2013

Battery-electric vehicles hold significant promise for reducing emissions and fuel consumption in package delivery applications. To assess the performance of battery-electric vehicles, the California Hybrid, Efficient and Advanced Truck (CalHEAT) Research Center carried out a comprehensive performance evaluation of three E-Truck models using information and data from in-use data collection, on-road testing and chassis dynamometer testing. The results presented in this report provide a comprehensive overview of the performance of commercial E-Trucks in parcel delivery applications.
