Global Commercial Vehicle Drive to Zero campaign

Global Commercial Vehicle Drive to Zero campaign


100% Zero-Emission New Truck and Bus Sales & Manufacturing by 2040

The program


CALSTART’s Drive to ZeroTM program and campaign aims to accelerate the growth of global zero- and near-zero-emission (ZE) commercial vehicle space, with the aim of ZE technology becoming commercially competitive by 2025 and dominant by 2040 in specific vehicle segments and regions. Drive to Zero is built upon a technology strategy for change called The Beachhead Strategy — a strategy that identifies the commercial vehicle market segments where zero- and near-zero technologies are most likely to succeed and help drive growth in other segments.
