DIESEL DOMINATES: DEBATE ON THE FUTURE OF TRUCKING THROUGH 2030 – COMBUSTION VS BATTERY VS HYDROGEN
WASHINGTON (February 10, 2022) – Diesel, and the combustion engines running on it, will continue to dominate the commercial trucking sector through 2030, beating out hydrogen and electrification. That was the key message from Allen Schaeffer, the executive director of the Diesel Technology Forum during Wednesday’s virtual debate organized by Mobility Impact Partners. Colin Murphy, the deputy director of the UC Davis Policy Institute, argued that battery-powered vehicles will soon dominate. Craig Scott of Toyota made the case for hydrogen fueled vehicles.
