Run on Less – Electric
In September 2021, NACFE worked with 13 fleet-OEM pairs and numerous supporting suppliers to stage a demonstration with commercial battery electric vehicles (CBEVs) in four market segments — vans and step vans, medium-duty box trucks, terminal tractors and heavy-duty regional haul tractors. The trucks operated in eight states or provinces in the US and Canada.
The purpose of the Run was to demonstrate the viability of currently available CBEVs in these market segments and to encourage fleets to make investments in production CBEVs.
These market segments are estimated to contain 5.2 million vehicles. Annual greenhouse gas emission savings from electrifying these market segments are estimated to exceed 100 million metric tons (or 1 megatonne) of CO2.

“RoL-E demonstrated that for four market segments — vans and step vans, medium-duty box trucks, terminal tractors and heavy-duty regional haul tractors — the technology is mature enough for fleets to be making investments in production CBEVs.”MIKE ROETH, NACFE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
