The Project

Efficient and affordable Zero Emission logistics through the Next generation of Electric TRUCKs


The transport industry is the most fossil-fuelled dependent, representing 37% of CO2 emissions. Medium-duty trucks are responsible for around 25% of these emissions, with an increasing fleet of 1,1 million in Europe.

The EU intends to achieve a climate-neutral economy by 2050. In this context, the European Commission supports projects that introduce electric vehicles into the transportation sector. NextETRUCK provides a sustainable solution to bring zero-emission electric medium freight haulage, playing a pioneering role in the decarbonisation of vehicle fleets and accelerating sustainable market replenishment.

Research organisations, business strategists, technology companies, vehicle and component manufacturers, and associations work together to advance zero-emission vehicles and ecosystems that are holistic, innovative, affordable, competitive and synergetic.



To achieve its objectives, NextETRUCK will develop three pilot sites in Istanbul (Turkey), London (United Kingdom), and Barcelona (Spain).

Funded by the 2Zero Partnership, NextETRUCK alings with Europe’s efforts to promote zero-emission transportation.


NextETRUCK seeks to


  • Build concepts tailored for regional medium freight haulage with at least a 10% increase in energy efficiency compared to existing highest-end benchmark electric vehicles. 
  • Develop new fleet management tools and charging infrastructure to reach full electrification in the operation of zero-emission vehicles, safeguarding energy efficiency
  • Prepare concept and infrastructure demonstrators for fast charging.
  • Offer new business models to increase end-user acceptance and foster the market uptake of the project solutions.
  • Contribute to climate goals, particularly on local air quality.
