In 2018, following the trend of the last 20 years, 1/3 of the energy consumed in Brazil had transport as final destination. Diesel accounted for almost 1/2 of this energy as it’s used to move the entire bus fleet, trucks, freight trains and a portion of the vessel fleet. Differently from cars, for which gasoline, ethanol and compressed natural gas can be used, the electrification of urban truck fleets proves to be a promising opportunity to introduce clean and renewable energy that is capable of complementing the current practice of adding biodiesel to diesel in order to reduce the dependence on diesel in transport. Because of operating regularly on urban routes of freight collection and delivery limited to a few tens of kilometers per day in stop-and-go operations and returning to the same starting point, semi-light and light trucks, whose fleet has grown 500% in the last 20 years, representing 1/3 of the national truck fleet, are natural candidates for the use of electric traction. BYD, the first vehicle manufacturer to join PLVB® in 2017, offers all kinds of solutions to overcome this challenge, proving that PLVB® member companies put themselves in the lead in terms of logistics in sustainability.
