Paper presented at 3rd Electric Road Systems Conference 2019, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 7th to 8th of May 2019
Catenary hybrid electric vehicles (CHV) are one solution for a decarbonization of heavy-duty transport. To this point, research focuses on Germany and Sweden while other regions with large amounts of trucks are neglected. In this paper, the economic market potential of CHV in Europe, the US, China and India are analyzed. We find high market shares for CHVs with diesel engine for large parts of the considered markets.
