Lower battery prices, volatility of gasoline prices and evolution of charging infrastructure all fuel the electrification of transportation. There are about 2,000 delivery trucks on Quebec roads generating close to 40,000 tonnes of GHGs. The use of 100% electric delivery trucks can thus be considered by companies as an economical and environmental option. As they generally travel short distances, these trucks are excellent candidates for electrification. However, there are few electric vehicle integrators in Quebec which impedes their expansion.
To meet the demand, Nordresa has started to develop and commercialize commercial drive train solutions. The IVI engineers assisted Nordresa in the preliminary design, dimensioning and selection of the components of the prototype of this 100% electric delivery truck.
